The helpline, which can be accessed via 0800 22 44 88, will provide a single point of health information about viral hepatitis for patients, the public and professionals involved in providing care and support for people affected by the condition. The helpline, which is supported by the Scottish Government, will improve access to information by aligning all the services previously available and be a cost effective resource for both patients and professionals
