- infected by hepatitis C as a result of the virus being transmitted from someone else, who themselves were infected by hepatitis C as a result of treatment they received
It contains guidance notes and the application form K for printing and signing.
This form will also help the scheme to assess whether you qualify for advanced hepatitis C payments.
It is designed for filling in and printing.
