Infected Blood Inquiry: Scots victims to give evidence

As the UK-wide inquiry into infected blood continues, the evidence moves to Edinburgh over the next 2 weeks, to hear from victims and their families in Scotland.

An estimated 3,000 people were infected with blood products in Scotland in the 1970s and 1980s.

The Inquiry, chaired by Sir Brian Langstaff 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.

Barney Ross (with Simon Bowie QC of Ampersand Advocates) is for the Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service and Health Boards is instructed by the Central Legal Office, NHS National Services Scotland.

Details of the Inquiry can be found on the Inquiry website here.
