About our Infected Blood Inquiry news...

Latest news on the Infected Blood Inquiry which saw numerous individuals requiring blood transfusions, such as post-childbirth or surgical patients, were inadvertently exposed to hepatitis and HIV through tainted blood during the 1970s and 1980s Get breaking updates on the cause, impact, authorities' response, support, consent, cover-up.

The conclusion of the infected blood inquiry underscores that the grievous scandal could and should have been largely prevented. According to the inquiry's final report, patients were knowingly subjected to "unacceptable risks." In its five-year investigation, the inquiry further accuses doctors, the government, and the NHS of attempting to conceal the truth. Sir Brian Langstaf, the report's author, laments the betrayal of trust by those in authority, emphasising that people relied on doctors and the government, only to have their trust shattered. Campaigner Clive Smith expresses that the revelation exposes a deliberate effort to deceive and hide the truth from both the nation and the world.

The tragic consequences are stark: over 30,000 individuals were infected with HIV and hepatitis C between 1970 and 1991 due to contaminated products, resulting in approximately 3,000 deaths since.
