Love Your Liver screener

Members of the public attending the roadshow will be invited to complete our liver health screener (which is also online). The screener is a simple lifestyle questionnaire that flags up any risk factors to your liver health.

If the screener results show a potential risk to your liver health, then you may be offered a liver check with a FibroScan machine. This non-invasive, pain-free scan can give an indication of any liver damage and, depending on the result, you may be recommended to visit your GP to discuss further liver tests.

However, if you’re concerned in any way about your liver health, please don’t wait for the Love Your Liver roadshow. Speak to your pharmacist or doctor as soon as possible.

Keep in touch

We’ll announce further dates and locations around the UK over the coming months.  If you’d like to be the first to hear about them, sign up to our e-newsletter.

Thank you to all the local liver clinicians who support us at these events, and to all the people who have made donations – we couldn’t run the roadshow without you.

If you would like to help with a donation or company sponsorship to the campaign, please contact loveyourliver@britishlivertrust.org.uk.
