Review of hepatitis C fund brought forward15th March 2012
The Skipton Fund - which makes payments to those infected with hepatitis C through contaminated NHS supplied blood, blood products and tissues - is to be reviewed early, the Government has announced.
The commitment to review the fund was decided following Lord Archer of Sandwell’s independent inquiry into contaminated blood and was originally planned for 2014 but has been brought forward after Ministers in response to a broad range of views from those infected with hepatitis C, their families and carers, and those in Parliament who represent them.

Now are they going to include those of us who were lucky enough to clear a few 7/8 years ago, but still suffer with different ailments associated with the virus as well as side effects due to the meds we had to take? The meds gave me eye problems so had to retire earlier than I wanted to, joints still hurt etc. Why should one group get increased amounts and others, not?
