Dr Kosh Agarwal - our lead clinician for Hepatitis C - was featured on Radio 4's Inside Health. This episode aims to break down the stigma that has been created by the media, that assumes that those with liver disease have the condition solely because of alcohol abuse.

For the programme - formerly 'Case Notes' - Dr Mark Porter interviewed Dr Agarwal about Hepatitis diagnosis, new therapies, comparisons between the US and the UK and diagnosing people in very vulnerable populations.
