England Infected Blood Support Scheme

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.

A discretionary payment of up to £900 is now available towards counselling costs for beneficiaries and their families to access support more easily. Visit our support for scheme members page for more information.
