This is the independent public statutory inquiry into the use of infected blood.
Following his appointment as Chair of the Infected Blood Inquiry, Sir Brian Langstaff and the Inquiry Team conducted a consultation on the Inquiry’s Terms of Reference. This consultation generated nearly 700 responses.
These were considered by the Inquiry Team and informed the recommended Terms of Reference that Sir Brian submitted to the Minister for the Cabinet Office.
The Minister has now accepted the Terms of Reference (PDF, 6 pages – 102kb) recommended by Sir Brian. This means the Inquiry is now formally established and can begin its investigative work.
