Last week, I attended the British Liver Trust’s Parliamentary Liver Awareness Day. It was good to learn about the importance of early detection and the management of liver disease. Liver disease is currently the second biggest cause of premature mortality and lost working years of life in England and Wales.

Improving diagnosis of liver disease appears to be crucial to improving outcomes for liver cancer and helping patients to access early surveillance is important. It was interesting to see specific facts and information about liver health in Southampton from the British Liver Trust.
