AbstractThis document updates previous PHLS guidance on the risks and management of occupational exposure to Hepatitis C. In line with recent guidance from the UK Health Departments, the PHLS now recommends that all source patients, subject to appropriate consent, should be tested for Hepatitis C infection. A baseline serum should be obtained from the exposed health care worker and stored for at least two years.
Publication history information: Guideline published more than 5 years ago, but publisher has confirmed the guideline's continued validity (March 2005).
