Woman loses battle for compensation

2nd December 2010

A woman who was infected with hepatitis C during a blood transfusion more than 20 years ago has lost a High Court bid for compensation.

Sharon Moore, 50, from Dunstable in Bedfordshire, was among thousands accidentally given contaminated NHS blood supplies in the mid-1980s. Ms Moore received the transfusion at Luton and Dunstable Hospital in June 1987 when she was 26 but the court said she could not prove she was infected for more than six months, which is required to trigger payment.
