The database was developed in 2004 and baseline data on consenting patients, and patients who have died, was collected in 2005 and 2006. The baseline report was published in 2007.
This is an ongoing project and follow-up data on this cohort is collected regularly. Eligible patients can consent at any stage and a patient information leaflet is available. Further information and consent forms are available through the eight hepatology units. The fifth round of data collection was carried out in 2014. 77% of eligible patients are now included in the database.
