St. George’s Hospital Factsheets about conditions and treatments within hepatology.
Hepatology CAS leaflet
The hepatology clinical assessment service (CAS) is a virtual service in which consultants will review your GP / physician referral, and plan for investigations prior to a physical appointment if required, or provide advice / reassurance to you or your referring doctor as needed. Our hepatology CAS co-ordinator will contact you regarding the recommended investigations. By doing the tests prior to seeing the doctor, we streamline the process for diagnosis and management.
Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD)
One of the commonest liver diseases globally, often associated with carrying too much weight, diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol amongst other things. Patients with associated liver inflammation and scarring are at highest risk of progressive liver damage and increased risk of cardiovascular disease. In conjunction with our primary care colleagues, we have developed a pathway to screen and monitor for liver scarring using blood tests and more advanced imaging techniques (Fibroscan) if required.
