    I am a chronic carrier of hepatitis b, i think i got it from my mom since she also tested positive with it. I am a registered nurse in the Philippines. I already have an employer in the UK and i am currently reviewing for my IELTS. I am scared of what will be the result of my medical exam if ever i would pass my IELts. Im scared that my employer would withdraw their job offer if they would find out that I have hepatitis b. To all of the nurses who have the same case as me, please enlighten me about the procedures and their policy. I really want to work abroad to help my family.
