Urgent reminder regarding Liver High Risk Register

Updated on: 03 Mar 2021   First published on 10 Apr 2020

Our advice and guidance around COVID-19 is being regularly reviewed. Visit https://www.bsg.org.uk/covid-19-advice/ to see the latest published guidance.


The government previously had asked patients receiving immunosuppression for a liver transplant or autoimmune hepatitis to be shielded. As no central register exists for patients with autoimmune hepatitis on immunosuppressive medications, individual hospitals with the help of specialists have been identifying these patients for shielding.

NHS England is asking that both lists of these patients should be passed onto the COVID-19 lead within their hospital by Monday 13th April. They will then pass this information onto NHS England.

Please ensure this information is passed onto the relevant person within your Trust.
