Infected Blood Inquiry
'From Hillsborough to the child sex abuse scandal to Grenfell Tower, the pattern is consistent. Working class people’s voices are ignored by those in power,' Jeremy Corbyn MP
The Inquiry will investigate the circumstances in which men, women and children treated by national Health Services in the United Kingdom (collectively, the “NHS”) were given infected blood and infected blood products, in particular since 1970.
It will also acertain as far as practicable, the likely numbers of people who have been infected (directly or indirectly) and examine whether, in addition to the HIV, Hepatitis C and Hepatitis B (“HCV” and “HBV”) viruses with which it is known that people were infected, people may have been exposed to the risk of other diseases (such as vCJD) in consequence of the use of infected blood or infected blood products.

Howe + Co will continue to seek other Core Participants to have their account told and give their contribution. We will further assist in not just obtaining accountability against the perpetrators but also compensation for the victims of this terrible tragedy.
