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 is chaired by Sir Brian Langstaff. He is supported by Counsel to the Inquiry and a team of civil servants, who are providing secretariat and legal support.

The UK Thalassaemia Society is a core participant in the infected blood inquiry.You can listen to the statement made by Roanna Maharaj on behalf of UKTS in September 2018 here: UKTS – Infected blood inquiry – United Kingdom Thalassaemia Society statement | Facebook
