Published/updated: 04/09/17 09:30

The causes, signs and symptoms of liver disease will be discussed in an upcoming health talk being held at Solihull Hospital.

The talk will be led by Dr Theodore Ngatchu, a consultant gastroenterologist at the Trust, and is open to anyone with a particular interest in the subject or indeed affected by a liver condition, however all are welcome.

Dr Ngatchu said: “I will be looking to speak about the causes, signs and symptoms of liver disease and about when you should be looking to see a specialist.

“Liver disease is a growing issue and a very important issue as people rarely know until it is a long way down the line, so increasing awareness by getting the information out there is vital. It will be great to see as many people as possible at the talk.”

The talk will take place in the Education Centre at Solihull Hospital Education Centre on Wednesday 13 September, between 5pm and 7pm.
