Hepatitis B

This report presents data on liver disease in the North West of England, describing the burden by age, sex, deprivation and geography. It explores routinely available data for the main causes of liver disease; alcohol, hepatitis B and C and fatty liver disease. It will be a useful resource for Directors of Public Health, health and wellbeing boards, commissioners and providers of services and others involved in liver disease. The data is commonly shown at a local authority level, when it is available.

The Medicine for Managers briefings are succinct profiles of particular diseases or conditions compiled by Dr Paul Lambden for nhsmanagers.net. They provide a useful overview of the disease, with an explanation of the causes and possible treatments, as well as epidemiological information. This briefing centres on Hepatitis B.
