England Infected Blood Support Scheme

The final Infected Blood Inquiry report was published on 20 May 2024. The report is available on the Inquiry’s website.

We are working closely with the Department of Health and Social Care regarding the recommendations made, to make interim compensation scheme payments to infected England Infected Blood Support Scheme (EIBSS) beneficiaries. 

You can continue to apply to the EIBSS if you have been historically infected with hepatitis C and/or HIV from NHS blood or blood products. 

The Infected Blood Compensation Authority will be responsible for any compensation payments. 

This will not have any immediate impact on your support payments. You can find further information about this on the UK Government update page.
