"Treatment for H.C.V."

About: Royal Hallamshire Hospital

(as the patient),

I have recently been into the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, ward E5 for Tropical Diseases and Out Patients Haematology. I have been treated for H.C.V (Hepatitis C virus) and the doctors explained my medical problems and the treatment that I needed. I was told that I would be treated for 12 months with Ribavirin and Interferon, but, the treatment was stopped after 8 months. The medical staff gave an excuse that I was not responding, but, according to American research this was not correct and I feel that the real reason was money.

I would like to thank the staff and doctors on E floor for the care that I received whilst there.
