Totally agree with Carr, until you can
and do carry out a full assessment with him. For background information
try the hep c trust weblink loads of information re: treatments, side effects
etc. DoH document essential information for professionals and guidance
on testing is also good information - link below.
Also NICE has guidelines for hep c treatments
see link below.

Would greatly appreciate some advice on someone
who has been referred to me. This gentleman is due to under go treatment
for Hep C + blood parasite. He is a driver who has been told the treatment
could make him drowsy, nauseous etc. The Human Resources department has
re-arranged his shifts to work Mon-Fri to allow him to have his treatment
at the W-end.
This is all the information I have at present
and I cannot contact the individual. I have been asked to give advice on
his fitness to work, likelihood of this being a recurrent problem, any
work related issues and any adjustments required.
As I know absolutely nothing about this condition
would be grateful for any help/advice anyone could give. After quickly
googling this I’m aware there are 6 types called genotypes numbered 1-6.
I do not know what type he has or what treatment he will be receiving.
I’m trying to get more info about this but in the meantime can anyone
