Hi, I’m Petra Wright. I’m 56, hepatitis C positive and genotype 3. I did 24 weeks of treatment in 2004, but did not clear the virus. I will do treatment again in 2010.
I live in Bo’ness, which is a medium-sized town in Scotland. I am married with a grown-up family, and have worked for the Hepatitis C Trust as their Scottish Officer since September 2009. The helpline staff at the Trust supported me through my first course of treatment. I am so proud that Scotland was the first country in the world to sign up to the ‘12 Asks’
