In June 2004, Scotland’s Health Minister recognised that hepatitis C virus was one of the country’s most challenging public health concerns.This acknowledgement came shortly after a Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh Consensus Conference on Hepatitis C, which highlighted that ‘services are already struggling to cope with the burden of infection,’ and that ‘significant resources must urgently be directed at improving prevention and delivery of care’. Following an extensive consultation, the Health Minister and the Chief Medical Officer launched the Hepatitis C Action Plan for Scotland in September 2006.
