ALERT: UK Infected Blood Inquiry

 

THE UK Infected Blood Inquiry (UKIBI) was set up to examine why patients in the UK were given infected blood and/or infected blood products. The inquiry has started its investigative work and is conducting hearings across the UK at the moment to obtain evidence and witness statements.

In accordance with Rule 9 of the Inquiry Rules 2006, requests for a written statement will be made to those persons from whom the inquiry proposes to take evidence. If you receive such a request please take the following action:
