Working to end PSC

We're here to help anyone affected by PSC and to drive PSC research towards a cure

PSC Support is the leading UK-based organisation for anyone affected by primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC). We’re here to help, whether you are a patient, family member, healthcare provider or researcher.


PSC is a rare, immune-mediated liver disease that can affect anyone, at any age. PSC is complex and current evidence suggests that people with a genetic makeup may be susceptible to some sort of (as yet unknown) environmental trigger, which causes their immune system to effectively 'attack' the bile ducts.


PSC Support is working to improve the lives of people affected by PSC by providing support and information, campaigning to improve the care we receive, and funding critical research to find effective PSC treatments.

Wonderful to be in a room with 1,500 + recipients of liver transplants @qehbham @QEHBCharity celebration of the 5000th transplant! Even more wonderful to meet @Drfattyliver and Mr Thamara Peters who was my surgeon a year ago yesterday! @NHSOrganDonor @PSCSupportUK @jfergus75

Excellent stuff Elena! Thank you! And the issues you highlight are not limited to liver transplant patients with PSC; they're part of a bigger issue for the liver disease community pre/post transplant @Drfattyliver @IanARowe
