Alcohol-related Liver Disease Special Interest Group

The Alcohol-related Liver Disease (ArLD) Special Interest Group (SIG)  has been established to address issues relatimg to the commonest cause of advanced liver disease in the United Kingdom.  Despite the frequency of ArLD, there are many inconsistencies and uncertainties regarding its management. The SIG will address early diagnosis, the natural history and management of ArLD with a view to quality improvement in patient care and coordination of effective clinical research. The group aims to bring clinical hepatology together with laboratory, addiction, primary care and public health specialists. The SIG lead is Dr Ewan Forrest of Glasgow Royal Infirmary. If anyone wishes to join the group please contact the BASL secretariat on
