Read a summary of this week’s evidence

Written by Jessica Bomford, September 30, 2022

This week the Infected Blood Inquiry brought together panels of the infected and affected to discuss themes which have emerged from evidence so far.

The first panel looked at the experiences of the Skipton Fund by people trying to apply who found they had missing medical records. Next was a panel about the experiences of people with hepatitis C who cleared the infection without treatment but have experienced ill health.

Discussed next were people’s experiences of being infected with hepatitis B followed by evidence from two mothers, Susan Hallwood, pictured, and Elaine Read whose sons with haemophilia were treated at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool in the 1980s.

Finally, a panel discussed the experiences of people infected and affected from minority ethnic communities.
