Find Support


The British Liver Trust Helpline is a lifeline for anyone affected by a liver condition. Call 0800 652 7330 between 10am and 2.45pm Monday to Friday (not bank holidays) or email (emails can be sent at any time and are answered during helpline hours).

British Liver Trust services are confidential. We will not pass on your details to anyone else without your express permission unless a staff member has concerns about your own or someone else's safety, in which case we may contact the appropriate emergency services.

hlp-member-resizedThe helpline is not an emergency number and cannot give medical advice. If you have a specific medical enquiry please call 111.

The information provided by our helpline is not a substitute for professional care and should not be used for diagnosing or treating a health problem or disease. If you have worrying symptoms or you feel unwell you should consult your doctor.

The helpline provides an information service only and is unable to access emergency care or talk to health professionals directly on an enquirer's behalf.

Local Support Groups

Meeting others to talk through how a liver condition has affected you can be incredibly helpful. The British Liver Trust facilitates patient and carer support groups across the country - click here to see if there is a group near you or another organisation who may be able to support you. If you are interested in starting your own group, please contact us to discuss setting one up in your local area.

British Liver Trust online support community

Our online liver health community provides an invaluable source of peer support. Members can post questions, share experiences and hear from others on how they or those close to them are managing their condition. The forum is hosted on Health Unlocked, recommended by NHS Choices and moderated by our Liver Nurse. Click here to join the British Liver Trust online community.

Please note that the online community is NOT a substitute for professional advice and does not replace your relationship with healthcare professionals. If you have a medical question, we strongly recommend you speak to your doctor or liver specialist; click here for guidance.

All of our services are only possible thanks to donations, including gifts in Wills
