What we do

This is an awaerness raising training event 15th March 2019

90% of liver disease is preventable, yet new research highlighted by the Lancet Commission highlighted that more than 3,000 people in Wales are admitted to hospital every year with liver-related conditions, with most of these admissions being unplanned.

The 3 main causes of liver disease are:
• Alcohol
• Non-alcohol related fatty liver disease (obesity)
• Viral hepatitis
Our project in Wales will campaign to improve awareness so more people understand the risk factors for liver disease and we advocate for better services for patients. We provide information resources and support through local support groups, events.
