Abstract

The mortality and working years lost from liver cirrhosis present a significant challenge both in the UK and globally. The recent British Association for the Study of the Liver (BASL) annual meeting highlighted the inequities present across the UK in terms of the burden of liver disease and access to specialist services. Innovative new ways of working and novel technologies are needed to address the growing demands of the specialty, while bearing in mind the need for sustainable and patient-focused interventions.
