Infected Blood Inquiry

The Inquiry will examine why men, women and children in the UK were given infected blood and/or infected blood products; the impact on their families; how the authorities (including government) responded; the nature of any support provided following infection; questions of consent; and whether there was a cover-up.

The Inquiry has now begun its investigative work. The first stage is to obtain evidence and witness statements.
