Infected Blood Inquiry
Infected Blood Inquiry Compensation Claims
It has been called the worst treatment disaster in the history of the NHS. During the 1970s and 1980s almost 4,000 people with haemophilia were infected with hepatitis C after receiving contaminated blood products from the NHS.
Over 1,200 of these were also infected with HIV. It is believed that over 1,200 people have since died as a result, but the exact figure is not known. There have been previous inquiries into what happened, but they did not have UK-wide powers to compel witnesses to attend and gather official documents.
