Is Sovaldi triple therapy available in the uk

Sovaldi triple therapy my doctor never mentioned this to me. i meant hepatologist. but is it available on the nhs i am genotype 1a have cirrhosis in a matter of years and get severe pain in liver. am not yellow or have jaundice im over weight but dont eat that much maybe a cause of other related illnesses. im to scared to risk a 50 50 option which was offered as the drugs may cause  damage  giving me no other treatment options so i read. i really want to live the 89 percent odds  seem great. i have suicidal tendencies a long history of it i dont think id survive on normal treatment with out a less tolerable source like sovaldi? please help me  thankyou so much.
