Making a follow-up plan

Step 3 of the All-Wales Abnormal Liver Blood tests pathway is to make a follow-up plan for patients. Patients who have ongoing findings of abnormality on the further investigations and are at high risk of fibrosis, will require referral to Hepatology for further investigations and more intense management. Patients who have no abnormalities on further investigations are at low risk of fibrosis, can be managed in primary care.

Management in primary care addresses the patient’s risk factors, including alcohol cessation and weight management.
