Liver services in York Hospitals

York Liver service treats a variety of liver conditions, including:

  • Fatty liver disease
  • Alcoholic liver disease
  • Viral liver disease e.g. Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C
  • Genetic conditions such as alpha-1 anti-trypsin deficiency, haemochromatosis and Wilson’s
  • Primary billiary cirrhosis (PBC)
  • Primary sclerosing cholangitis
  • Autoimmune hepatitis
  • Cirrhosis – all causes
  • Portal hypertension
  • Liver tumours – benign and malignant

Patients with advanced liver disease may require specialist services such as liver transplant or surgery, which are not provided in York. We have close links with transplant centres in Leeds and Newcastle as well as regular special meetings with liver cancer specialists in Leeds.

It is important that you have all relevant blood tests before your first appointment with hepatology. Please ask your GP to ensure this is done.

While contagious viruses are active year-round, winter is a prime time for norovirus, colds, influenza (flu), and other respiratory illnesses.

 

These infections are highly contagious, so we urge people to stay away unless their visit is absolutely essential to help reduce the spread of infection within our hospitals.

Hospitals are full of sick people, many of them frail and elderly, so bringing germs into a hospital is the worst thing you can do.  We have an active programme of infection prevention but we can’t spot visitors who really shouldn’t be here.  Please stay at home if you’re unwell to help aid the wellbeing and recovery of our patients.
