Infected blood scandal patients in Scotland will get increased financial support


The BBC report “Victims of the infected blood scandal in Scotland will get increased financial support, the Scottish government has announced. Those suffering from advanced hepatitis C infection will get £27,000 per year – the equivalent of the average income.

Victims with chronic hepatitis C will also now receive a £50,000 lump sum payment, up from £20,000 previously. The widows and widowers of those who have died from hepatitis will receive annual payments for the first time. The settlement is significantly higher than that currently proposed for victims in the rest of the UK.”
