Living with Hepatitis C

33-year-old Ben Franklin from London was diagnosed with Hepatitis C nine months ago. The virus can cause life-threatening liver damage.

A new drug which could cure his condition was approved by NHS England last year, but funding is limited to 10,011 people.

Ben lives in London where the Hepatitis C Trust says waiting times can be long in comparison with some parts of England.
