England Infected Blood Support Scheme

Government announcement (30 April 2019) - enhancements to payments

The government has announced some enhancements to the payments made through the England Infected Blood Support Scheme, administered by us.

Beneficiaries will receive either an enhancements to payments letter setting out the details of these changes, and any impact these changes will have on them.

Alternatively, beneficiaries can get the same information through their preferred contact method, either by phone or email.

We support people historically infected with hepatitis C and/or HIV from NHS blood or blood products. We also help families, civil or long-term partners after the death of someone infected.
