At the end of last year Anne Milton, Under Secretary of State for the Department of Health, commissioned a review into the provision of Government support for those who were infected with HIV and Hepatitis C from NHS supplied blood products.
The results of the review were announced in January. Part of the package of additional support announced included the availability of financial support in respect of those who died before 2003. Before now, the families of those who died before the Skipton Fund was set up in 2003 were not entitled to apply for financial support. This is no longer the case. Family members may now apply in respect of their loved one who died before 2003.
