ALL PARTY PARLIAMENTARY GROUP

The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Haemophilia and Contaminated Blood is a dynamic cross-party group, bringing together almost 100 MPs and Peers.

Its aim is to raise awareness of haemophilia, bleeding disorders and the contaminated blood tragedy issues amongst parliamentarians and influence legislation and policy to improve the lives of the affected community.

It offers the opportunity to hear directly from people with bleeding disorders including those who were infected with HIV and Hepatitis C via their NHS treatment in the 1970s and 80s and supports members to ask questions and participate in debates and Parliamentary meetings on these issues.

The officers of the APPG regularly correspond with the DH on the support available to people affected by contaminated blood and all letters and replies are available on this website. Read the APPG correspondence here.

The APPG reformed after the 2017 election with an inaugural meeting on the 12th July 2017.

The Group undertook an inquiry into the support for those affected by the contaminated blood scandal in the UK which was published in January 2015. Read the full report (PDF) or the executive summary (PDF).

The Co-Chairs of the Group are:

  • Diana Johnson MP
  • Sir Peter Bottomley MP

The Secretariat to the APPG on Haemophilia and Contaminated Blood is provided by The Haemophilia Society.

The APPG is keen to welcome new members to support their work and ensure haemophilia, bleeding disorders and the contaminated blood tragedy remain on the political agenda. We encourage the affected community to contact their MP and ask them to join the APPG by contacting the Co-Chairs or the Haemophilia Society on Jeff@haemophilia.org.uk.
