Toolkit for improving early detection of liver disease pathways

The British Liver Trust would like the support of senior clinicians to advocate for effective pathways for the early detection of liver disease. This toolkit has been developed to support this activity.

A key policy campaign of the British Liver Trust is the ‘make early diagnosis of liver disease routine’ campaign which aims to better understand existing primary care pathways for liver disease and influence commissioning bodies to implement effective early detection pathways across the UK. This toolkit is crucial to the success of this campaign.

The toolkit explains to Integrated Care Boards and Health Boards what the problem is, what are the risks of not tackling growing liver disease rates, what is the solution and why an effective pathway for the early detection of liver disease is the best solution. The toolkit also includes exemplars of diagnostics options that can be included in the pathway.
