Infected Blood Petition

On 30th April I am presenting a petition in Parliament calling for compensation for the people who suffered in the Infected Blood Scandal.  

  

The Infected Blood Inquiry was set up in 2017 to investigate the circumstances that lead to thousands of UK patients contracted HIV, hepatitis viruses, or both, from contaminated blood or blood products, primarily during the 1970s and 1980s.   

It is estimated that 26,800 people were infected with Hepatitis C through blood transfusions between 1970 and 1991, with an estimated 1,820 deaths as of 2019 related to Hepatitis C.  

The Inquiry published final recommendations on compensation on 5 April 2023. The report made 18 detailed recommendations on who should receive compensation and how it should be delivered and stated that interim compensation payments should be extended to bereaved parents and children.

  

I am presenting a petition to Parliament on the 30th April on behalf of constituents, calling on the Government to implement the recommendations without delay and would be grateful for your support.  

If you would like to sign the petition, please fill out the form below.

You can find more information about the Inquiry on their website

Recommendations of the Infected Blood Inquiry  

To the House of Commons:

  

The petition of residents of the constituency of North East Fife  declares that people who received infected blood and who have suffered as a consequence have, along with their families, waited far too long for redress.  

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to implement the recommendations in the Second Interim Report of the Infected Blood Inquiry without delay.  

Thanks for signing the petition
