Hepatitis C patients face 'difficult and distressing time'

The four women in total now known to have had Hepatitis C transmission from the former healthcare worker are being offered care and support by our specialist services.

We understand that this is a very difficult and distressing time for them and we would ask that everyone respects their need for compassion and confidentiality.

We are thankful that we have been able to reassure other women tested and are grateful to all the patients who came forward to take the test.

– Dr Gill Richardson, Director of Public Health for Aneurin Bevan Health Board
