Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a contagious, blood borne pathogen. Untreated, it can cause liver disease and lead to death.

We offer a patient centred Hepatitis C screening, diagnosis and treatment program.

This treatment results in cure in more than 95% of the cases.

A person is at risk for Hepatitis C if:

  • They have a history of intravenous drug use
  • They have a history of sharing tattoos or piercing equipment
  • Sharing of drug paraphernalia
  • Unprotected sex
  • Household contacts
  • For the period prior to 1992, those who have:
    • Received a blood transfusion or clotting factor
    • Organ or Tissue transplant
  • Born between 1955 and 1975 and were in contact with poorly sterilized medical equipment

How the Hepatitis C Program Works

The program involves:

  • Point of Care testing with initial Hepatitis C results available within 20 minutes
  • Laboratory testing with needless options for blood work
  • Hepatitis A and B vaccination
  • Fibroscan as required
  • Referral for advanced Hepatology requirements or co-illness (HIV, Hep B) onsite

The Treatment:

  • This walk in service is available 5 days per week.
  • Treatment is 1 pill per day for 12 weeks.
  • Treatment is generally very well tolerated with little to no side effects.
