Government consultation regarding Hepatitis C payments

Hi everyone

The UK government has issued a consultation that seeks views on the new special appeals mechanism that offers financial and other support for those with chronic hepatitis C infection. This relates to reforms of the current payment schemes for individuals infected with HIV and/or hepatitis C following treatment with NHS-supplied blood or blood products before September 1991.

To see the consultation documents and respond please visit:

Please note the consultation is for those in the UK only and it will close to comments on 17 April 2017.

Best wishes

  • I believe this is compensation for contaminated NHS-supplied blood.

  • Dear Millie

    Sorry to hear that you are suffering so much. This consultation relates to those infected with Hepatitis C and/or HIV due to contaminated NHS blood products before 1991.

    We have a section on our website regarding benefits and entitlements that may be of help to you here:
