Answer

Public Health Scotland – the National public health body for Scotland is responsible for the monitoring and evaluation of blood borne virus’. This includes collecting data on treatment numbers which, pre-pandemic, was published regularly. Data collection for BBV and HCV has been significantly impacted due to the Covid 19 pandemic, however updated figures will be published later this year within the UK Hepatitis C report.
