One of the main aims of the Foundation is to support its members with information and advice. Medical Advice is provided by members of  the Medical Advisory Committee which consists of leading hepatologists from the UK and around the world.

While we will try to answer questions as fully as possible, please note that we can give advice only to those who are members of the PBC Foundation (membership is free).  Furthermore, we are unable to give advice on specific personal medical matters: these should be addressed by the person’s clinician.
