Infected Blood Inquiry
Commemoration Event for Preliminary Hearings

The infection of up to 30,000 people with contaminated blood has been called the biggest treatment disaster in NHS history. During the 1970s and 80s people with haemophilia, bleeding disorders and those receiving transfusions were given blood infected with HIV and hepatitis viruses. Nearly 3,000 people have so far died, with thousands more coping with the the awful legacy of this scandal. After decades of campaigning by infected and affected for justice and recognition, a UK-wide inquiry is now underway. Hunter Gatherer were asked to develop and stage a commemorative event to open the Preliminary Hearings at Church House in Westminster.
