You are not required by law to tell anyone that you are taking treatment for hepatitis C. However, it is important to check that any other medications you take will not interact with hep C medication.

If a different doctor suggests you take a medication, you can choose to tell them that you are taking hep C medication, or you may prefer to check if it is safe with the doctor you are seeing for hep C treatment.

If you are in hospital and cannot check with your own doctor, it is important to tell anyone who is prescribing you medication about any other medicines you might be taking, including hep C treatment or complementary treatments.
