In this section
We specialise in the advice and treatment of all types of liver disease. Our service aims to improve early identification of liver disease and make referrals, where appropriate, to tertiary services such as transplantation.
Our Hepatology service delivers treatment for patients with a variety of liver conditions.
We hold a variety of clinics in Malton, Scarborough, Selby and York and have established links with other service providers for specific treatments.
Patients can be referred to our service via a GP, hospital doctor or other healthcare professionals.
Once a referred we will arrange an appointment at the clinic most convenient to you and depending on the degree of urgency. We may send blood request forms to you for completion prior to the appointment. Occasionally scans or other investigations will be arranged before the appointment so that the results can be discussed at the appointment.
Preparing for your appointment
It is important that you have all relevant blood tests before your first appointment with the Hepatology Service. mPlease ask your GP or the healthcare worker who is referring you to ensure that bloods are taken to help speed up your referral.
