Abstract

In 2004, the Scottish Government recognised that 'Hepatitis C is one of the most serious and significant public health risks of our generation' [1] . By December 2006, Health Protection Scotland (HPS) estimated that 50,000 people in Scotland had been infected with the hepatitis C virus (HCV) and that 38,000 were chronic carriers (Figure 1) [2]. Following an extensive consultation in 2005, the Health Minister and Chief Medical Officer launched Scotland's 'Action Plan for Hepatitis C' in September 2006 [3]. .
