Independent inquiry into the deaths of nearly 2,000 haemophilia patients after exposure to contaminated blood and blood products

Inquiry opens into blood contamination deaths - Guardian

Extracts:

"An independent inquiry began today into the deaths of nearly 2,000 haemophilia patients exposed to HIV and/or hepatitis C through contaminated blood and blood products, described as the worst treatment catastrophe in NHS history."

"The campaign on the patients' behalf has been led by Labour peer Lord Alf Morris, who was Britain's first minister for disabled people and is the president of the all-party parliamentary group on haemophilia.

He said that, of the 4,670 haemophiliac patients exposed to hepatitis C, 1,243 were also exposed to HIV and despite improvements in treatment for both viruses, only 2,552 patients with hepatitis C and just 361 with HIV are still alive."

  1. Take part in an online discussion on haemophilia

    Hi

    We at The Patient Connection are currently running a research blog or online discussion on the subject of haemophilia

    In particular we are interested in haemophilia as a genetic/family condition and any thoughts you might have about gene therapy

    Apart from that we would love it if you could share your story or just post useful resources for fellow sufferers.

    Belinda

    PS The link will give you an option to join our formal research community and participate in research into the opinions of the haemophilia community later on in the year.
