Rapid access means:

  • Same day response if you contact us in business hours
  • If you need treatment we will commence it within 30 days
  • We will keep your face to face appointments to a minimum, but support services are available if you want them.
  • We will monitor your progress by phone.
  • You can self-refer (you don't need to go to a GP for a referral to us)
  • We will post medications to you.

If you are a healthcare professional

Any health professional can refer to the rapid access Hepatitis C treatment service - you do not have to be a GP.
