Three quarters of people with liver disease are diagnosed at a stage when it is often too late for treatment or intervention. Finding liver disease earlier will need GPs and primary care nurses to proactively look for it in their patients.
To do this, they need clear guidelines and an easy to implement pathway to refer people for the right tests and treatment. We’re now calling on MPs to help us make sure that pathways are put in place where they are lacking, and are properly implemented where they are in place.
