What is the Infected Blood Inquiry?

The Infected Blood Inquiry is an independent public statutory Inquiry established to examine the circumstances in which men, women and children treated by national health services in the United Kingdom were given infected blood and infected blood products, in particular in the 1970s and 1980s.

It took evidence from 2019 until 2023.

The final report was published on 20 May 2024 on the Infected Blood Inquiry website.

Our commitment to supporting the inquiry

We continue to support the Inquiry and will consider carefully how we can help implement or assist in implementing the recommendations made by the Infected Blood Inquiry.
