Infected Blood Inquiry team announce meetings across country

The Infected Blood Inquiry team will hold meetings for people affected by infected blood in early 2019, ahead of the public hearings due to commence at the end of April.

The meetings are being held to update people on the work of the Inquiry and to provide an opportunity for people to speak to the Inquiry team in a convenient location in their local area.

Meetings will take place next year in: Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Carlisle, Glasgow, Hastings, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Norwich, Nottingham, Plymouth and Southampton.

In November and December 2018 there will be meetings in Belfast, Edinburgh and north Wales due to many people from those areas being unable to travel to the preliminary hearings.

Further information is available on the Infected Blood Inquiry website here.
