Turning Point Scotland’s SEASTAR services in Ayr and Kilmarnock will be holding open information sessions for World Hepatitis Day on July 28th.

Sessions are open to those who want to increase their knowledge of Hep C including those affected by the illness, friends, family and professionals.

Infection rates in Scotland are thought to be double those in England, with an estimated 50 000 people affected by Hepatitis C alone.

SEASTAR’s friendly support staff and NHS community nurses will provide information on testing, results and treatment.

Information leaflets will also be available along with tea, coffee and snacks.

The events will run from 10am – 12.30 at 3 Killoch Place, Ayr KA7 2AE and from 1.30 – 3pm at 22 Portland Street, Kilmarnock KA1 2BT.
