The Yorkshire and the Humber Liver Network is a group of gastroenterologists, hepatologists, specialist nurses, general practitioners, practice nurses, public health doctors, community nurses and allied health professionals from our region.

The Yorkshire and the Humber Liver Network consists of healthcare professionals specialising in looking after patients with liver disease. It includes gastroenterologists, hepatologists and specialist nurses from hospital departments in our region, general practitioners and practice nurses, public health doctors, community nurses and allied health professionals. We all have the common aim of delivering high quality services and improving the care of patients with liver disease.

The Network was founded in 2007 as a forum for sharing knowledge and practice, developing guidance and strengthening links between specialists in secondary care, gastroenterology services and with the supra-regional unit in Leeds for the benefit of better care for patients with liver disease around the region. The network has gradually expanded to include the whole geographical area of Yorkshire and the Humber. A development project to extend the network boundaries into primary care services started in 2011.

Healthcare professionals who deliver services to patients with liver disease are welcome to join as general members. Membership is free and advantages include e-mail alerts when new guidance is produced by the network, invitations to network meetings and educational events and access to the members’ area of the website.
