Good practice case study: ROADS @ Bristol Drugs Project


HCV Action
This HCV Action good practice case study looks at the work done by ROADS (Recovery Orientated Alcohol & Drugs Service) @ Bristol Drugs Project. When ROADS took over the service in November 2013, under 12% of clients assessed as appropriate to be tested for hepatitis C went on to actually be tested. Bristol ROADS made a concerted effort to increase the number of people receiving hepatitis C tests by better coordinating services and finding ways to address the complications that prevented people who had agreed to be tested for hepatitis C from actually receiving the test. By 2016, 95% of those deemed eligible to be tested went on to receive a test.

This case study looks at how the service operated and also features a case study of a ROADS @ Bristol Drugs Project service user and his experience of being tested and diagnosed with hepatitis C.
