Psychological support provided by the Inquiry

Confidential psychological support from the British Red Cross

The wellbeing of people participating in the Inquiry is extremely important to the Chair, Sir Brian Langstaff. The Inquiry is funding a confidential support service for anyone affected by treatment with infected blood or blood products. This is run by a team from the British Red Cross who have been working with the Inquiry since September 2018.

You can contact the confidential support service directly by calling 0800 458 9473 or 0203 417 0280 at these times:

  • Monday between 11am and 1pm
  • Wednesday between 7pm and 9pm
  • Friday between 2pm and 4pm

If you prefer to call at another time, you can leave a message and the team will call you back as soon as possible, and on the same day where that is practical. 

Members of this team will be providing face to face support during the Inquiry's public hearings being held across the UK.

The Inquiry welcomes feedback and keeps the level of this service under review.
