Written by Jessica Bomford, July 10, 2022

This week there have been four days of evidence at the Infected Blood Inquiry, beginning with Lord William Waldegrave, former Health Secretary from 1990 to 1992. 

There was then a presentation of the role of the chief medical officer in the 1970s and 80s. 

Finally, long-standing campaigner Carol Grayson, pictured, gave evidence about her 30 years of campaigning and research. Her husband Pete Longstaff and brother-in-law Stephen both had haemophilia and died as a result of HIV and hepatitis C infections.
