The Infected Blood Inquiry has begun its first evidence phase. Nicholas Moss and Emma Price represent the Department of Health and Social Care, along with Catherine Dobson, and are led by Eleanor Grey QC.
The Inquiry has started to hear evidence from people who were infected or affected by infected blood or infected blood products provided during NHS treatment. This phase of the evidence will be heard over 11 weeks between 30 April and 18 October 2019 at a number of locations across the UK. It will be followed, running into November 2019, by clinical evidence exploring issues of treatment and care and psychosocial evidence focussing on impact. The next phase of hearings, which will focus on the knowledge, decisions, actions and omissions of all relevant decision-makers and the response of the Government and others will begin in late spring 2020.
