Infected Blood Inquiry – update

Public hearings resumed last week in the Infected Blood Inquiry. A wide range of witnesses, including three Saunders Law clients, gave evidence to the Inquiry sitting in London.

The Inquiry will be hearing witness evidence for the next two weeks and you can follow the hearings live or after the event on the Inquiry’s YouTube channel (link here).

A public inquiry into the Contaminated Blood Scandal was announced on 11th July 2017 by the then Prime Minister Theresa May. On 2nd July 2018, the Infected Blood Inquiry was formally established and opening hearings took place in September 2018.

The Inquiry is investigating how thousands of people were infected by the NHS in the 1970s or 1980s with HIV and/or hepatitis C through contaminated blood or blood products. For further information about the Inquiry’s focus, please see the Inquiry’s Terms of Reference (link here).

Cyrilia Davies Knight is instructed in the Infected Blood Inquiry on behalf of four core participants and her team includes Karon Monaghan QC of Matrix Chambers and Philip Dayle of No5 Chambers as counsel. Cyrilia is assisted by Saunders Law’s Ben Curtis.
