A new project is underway in Dundee for people with hepatitis thanks to funding from iHub.
Led by Dundee Health and Social Care Partnership, the project will be delivered in partnership with the Integrated Substance Misuse Service and Blood Borne Virus Managed Care Network.
The project aims to provide person-centred mentorship to improve the health of people with hepatitis who are not engaging with secondary care services. Effective mentoring has the opportunity to improve people’s life skills, their lifestyle, encourage them to attend appointments and physically accompany the patient to appointments if necessary.
Funding has been provided by iHub’s Improvement Fund, which was set up to support projects at a local level that improve the quality of health and social care services in Scotland.
