This is the website for the Scottish Public Inquiry into Hepatitis C/HIV acquired infection from NHS treatment in Scotland with blood and blood products. It was set up by Scottish Ministers under the Inquiries Act 2005. It was announced by Nicola Sturgeon MSP, the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Wellbeing on 23 April 2008. The Rt Hon Lord Penrose is the Chairman of the Inquiry.
The Right Honourable Lord Penrose
On behalf of Lord Penrose, I am able to advise that the first batch of warning letters arising from the Final Report has been issued. It is expected that there will be two further batches. Another progress report will be issued at the end of May 2014 when, subject to the warning letters process being complete, Lord Penrose expects to be in a position to announce a publication date for the Final Report.
Secretary to the Inquiry
