The British Liver Trust have recently released a patient charter, which has outlined the standards of care that a patient should receive when they are diagnosed with liver disease. The standards have been agreed with BASL (British Association for the Study of Liver), BSG (British Society of Gastroenterology) and the British Liver Nurses Association. A copy of the patient charter can be found on the British Liver Trust website.
