Our Strategy

Our vision is a World Without Liver Disease and our strategy for 2021 to 2024,  identifies six key areas of progress where we can start making that vision a reality.

  • Support everyone affected by liver disease and liver cancer
  • Improve early detection so more people are diagnosed at a stage when the damage can be reversed
  • Drive up standards of care and improve outcomes for people affected by liver disease
  • Increase awareness and improve people’s understanding of liver disease and liver cancer and reduce stigma
  • Campaign for policy changes that make it easy for everyone to be healthier
  • Work in partnership to support research and ensure patients are part of the conversation

We can change the future of liver disease and liver cancer. But we can't do it alone.

What is a CCG or ICS?

CCGs (Clinical Commissioning Groups) were established as part of the Health and Social Care Act in 2012. They are groups of general practices, which come together in each area to commission the best services for their patients and population.

ICS (Integrated Care Systems) are new partnerships between the organisations that meet health and care needs across an area, to coordinate services and to plan in a way that improves population health and reduces inequalities between different groups. ICS will replace Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) by April 2022 and cover a wider geographic area than CCGs.

Devolved nations – health is primarily a devolved matter across the four nations which make up the UK. Among these variations are differing regional structures, Scotland and Wales have Health Boards, England have CCGs (currently being superseded by Integrated Care Systems) and Northern Ireland has Health and Social Care Trusts.
