Hepatology (liver)

You will be referred to us if there is a concern regarding your liver or biliary system. We manage a range of conditions including cirrhosis, alcohol related liver disease, fatty liver disease, viral hepatitis, auto immune conditions, biliary conditions and hepatocellular carcinoma.

We are a regional referral unit for complex liver disease, and see patients from the Wessex area, Guernsey and Jersey, the Channel Islands and the Falklands.

We also work closely with the transplant centre at Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge, and hold a monthly satellite clinic. This means we can monitor you closely, before and after your transplant, allowing you to stay closer to home.

The average waiting time to be seen in the general hepatology clinic is between 4 and 12 weeks. There are three general clinics a week, on Monday morning and afternoon and Thursday afternoon.

As a teaching hospital, we are proud to lead and be part of national and international clinical trials. We hope all our patients can access these studies and you may be approached to take part.
