The Infected Blood Inquiry

Support is available to individuals infected with Hepatitis C and/or HIV by NHS supplied blood transfusions or blood products and their dependants.

The Infected Blood Inquiry has been hearing evidence since 2019, and expects to continue this into 2022. The Inquiry would like to ensure that everyone living with hepatitis C caused by infected blood or blood products has the opportunity to contribute to the Inquiry by sharing their experience. 

There are a number of ways to do this, with more information on how to participate here. The Inquiry would be grateful if you could share this information with any of your patients who were infected in this way before September 1991, prior to effective screening.  The Inquiry team recognises that participating in an Inquiry can be difficult and anyone who comes forward will be able to share their experience in confidence, and can do this anonymously if preferred.

The best way to contact the Inquiry is to email or phone 0808 169 1377.
