Liver disease patient charter: What care you should expect

The liver disease patient charter describes what care you should expect when you are diagnosed with liver disease.

It is important that you feel informed and involved so you can make knowledgeable decisions about your care.

Central to the patient charter is that all people with liver disease deserve to:

  • be diagnosed as early as possible
  • be treated with respect
  • have their condition and treatment explained in a way they understand
  • know that all their personal information is kept confidential
  • have access to the best standard of medical care – regardless of where they live, lifestyle, and type of liver disease
  • feel empowered and able to ask about all aspects of their care
