Giving evidence to this inquiry in to the contaminated blood scandal,” John Cornes said he had been infected with Hepatitis C during treatment for haemophilia.
It’s taking a look at just how thousands of patients were given infected blood products during the 1970s and 1980s in what’s repeatedly been called”the most peculiar treatment scandal in the history of the NHS”.
A few 4,800 individuals with haemophilia were infected with Hepatitis C over 2 decades. More than 2,000 have been considered to have died.
“So it’s changed at least 30 of my loved ones, therefore I am here to reflect not just the infected, but in addition the affectedarea”
Mr Cornes, that started to obtain treatment for haemophilia in the late 1970s, said that as kids”the only treatment was transfusions using icecold packs to stop the bleeding”.
