We are holding another joint members’ meeting with the Scottish Infected Blood Forum on Saturday July 14th at the Mercure City Hotel in Glasgow from 11:30am to 4:30pm.
Recent meetings have focused on either the Scottish Infected Blood Support Scheme (SIBSS) or the UK Infected Blood Inquiry. This meeting is unusual as it will cover both.
We are expecting that by 14 July the Clinical Review Group Report will have been published. The meeting will let us come together and respond to it. The Scottish Government know we are meeting and will use any feedback from the meeting to inform their response to the report. The terms of reference for the group means the report will be of most relevance to those in the current Chronic (Stage 1) category, including the widows.
The Secretary to the Infected Blood Inquiry has also agreed to come to the meeting to give affected people in Scotland up to date information and an opportunity to ask questions.
Because the meeting is longer than usual we have decided to provide a light lunch. However, we have very limited funds so will only be able to provide lunch for those who register in advance. So if you’d like to join us please register today.
