The Infected Blood Inquiry, published in May 2024, exposes the heartbreaking truth behind the thousands infected with HIV and Hepatitis C from contaminated blood products in the 70s and 80s. While the report offers some solace to victims of the infected blood scandal, it also highlights the excessive delay endured by victims and their families.

The Inquiry’s findings are a vital step for justice. AWH Solicitors encourages the authorities to promptly implement the report’s recommendations, guaranteeing proper compensation and support for those affected.

Comments from Medical Negligence Solicitor, Sophia Azam

Sophia Azam, welcomes the Infected Blood Inquiry report:

“The infected blood scandal will now be known as the NHS’s biggest failure.

Sir Brian Langstaff, who chaired the 5-year long inquiry, said doctors, civil servants sought to actively ‘cover up’ the truth for decades.

For those of us who work in clinical negligence, this comes as no surprise. We hope the findings of this inquiry represent a real turning point for patient safety.”
