Liver disease patient survey 2020 findings

In October 2019, we conducted the biggest ever survey of liver patients, to find out more about how they feel about their diagnosis and care. It asked patients about their risk factors, diagnosis, the care they received and whether they felt their disease and care was clearly explained.

The results provide a unique insight that enables us to better understand the experience of patients so that we can more effectively campaign on behalf of everyone with liver disease and provide support services to meet their needs.

The British Liver Trust will use the results of this survey when talking to policy-makers, politicians and the media to continue to raise awareness of liver disease and campaign for better support for patients.
