This is a known barrier (see hepatitisctreatment.homestead.com/generic-harvoni.html ) See Getting Treated/How to do it and `Doctors' above. A foreign script might do it.

Hi David,

If you have access to the North West, and are prepared to pay a private consultant, contact Pall Mall Medical Clinics (only Manchester or Newton-le-Willows: the consultant at these two is prepared to help) on 0161 832 2111.

Just so that anyone getting an appointment with a doctor other than their regular one is prepared.

The doctor will want to see your baseline medical info:

1) A full set of blood tests. The consultant at Pall Mall Medical is very thorough on this, and will insist on you getting done any that are missing. Because my NHS Hepatology clinic were being utterly obstructive to my attempts to go down the generics route (I'm still waiting for my case notes which I purchased several weeks ago under the freedom of information laws), I got a full set of tests done at Pall Mall Medical which cost me nearly £300. I've attached a copy of the results to give an indication of what's required.

2) A recent biopsy or fibroscan result, though an ultrasound scan result may be accepted (it was in my case).

3) Any previous or current medical issues, including any current medication. You shouldn't need documentary evidence of these, just a verbal explanation.

Thanks Wilko, yes I have been communicating with them, it's more like £145 if you want to include Hb & AST though and quoted £206 at Nuffield. Full comprehensive blood test inc. Hb offers free AST as an option, but when you try to add that it won't do it. Trying to sort out today.

I'd be surprised if blood tests from June were unacceptable to the Pall Mall Consultant, Wiko, unless your health has taken a noticable turn for the worse since then. When I saw him for the first time at the end of July, he didn't have a problem with my viral load test which had been done in April.

I am going to get the whole lot done. For Drs and for me too - It'll be handy for a vriety of reasons. It is quite expensive and can't really afford but not as expensive as going through a private Dr if they request more testing when you are there.

Wilko - The Comprehensive PlusV including Hb :
privatebloodtests.co.uk/Comprehensive-PL...Blood-Test-and-hba1c

This is what they told me : "The Comprehensive Plus V at the Spire Hospital does not include AST. We can add this on as your free test though if you would like it". - I tried to add this as suggested online and it didn't work (wouldn't add AST for free) - awaiting response but may just call. The Nuffield wanted around £200+ but Spire hospitals are ofering the deal from the same website as above.

(Edit) My last fibroscan was July 2014, nxt appointment around 6 weeks away, but may be further wait for a new fibroscan. I don't want to pay for one as it seems they are not always correct.
