Our work in Scotland

The British Liver Trust works across Scotland to:

  • Increase awareness of liver disease and the steps people can take to improve their liver health
  • Campaign for early detection, when interventions and lifestyle changes can still be effective in reversing many cases of liver disease
  • Support patients affected by liver conditions, and their families and carers
  • Develop working relationships with hospitals, clinicians, GPs and other associated healthcare professionals for the benefit of liver patients

Our ambassadorial work provides a voice for liver patients at key gatherings, including the Scottish Liver Alliance Forum and the Scottish HepatoPancreatoBiliary Cancer Network.

We attend Scottish parliamentary events and are part of cross-party groups on various aspects of liver health.

We attend and provide liver health information for community health events run by local councils and other regional healthcare organisations. We visit employers to hold Healthy Working Lives awareness presentations for employees.
