Infected Blood Inquiry: Final day of public hearings

Blood bag scaled

Today is the last day of the public hearing for the Infected Blood Inquiry. The inquiry started in 2018 and has since heard testimony from 370 witnesses and reviewed thousands of documents.

For those unfamiliar with its origin, this is an independent public statutory Inquiry established to examine the circumstances in which men, women and children treated by national Health Services in the United Kingdom were given infected blood and infected blood products, in particular since 1970.

Fiona Scolding KC, Miranda Butler, Hannah Gibbs and Georgina Fenton act for the Leigh Day Core Participants – a large group of infected and affected victims of the infected blood scandal.

The final report by the inquiry's chair, Sir Brian Langstaff, is expected later this year.

Further information may be found on the Infected Bloody Inquiry website.

The latest press coverage on the inquiry may be found on BBC News, Sky News and The Independent.
