Established in 2017, the Infected Blood Inquiry is an independent public statutory inquiry established to examine the circumstances in which men, women and children treated by national health services in the UK were given infected blood and infected blood products, in particular, in the 1970s, 80s and very early 90s.

The Inquiry took oral evidence from 2019-2023. The Inquiry’s final report was published on 20 May 2024. You can find further information about the Inquiry’s work here (opens in new tab).

If you are concerned about your risk you can access a free and confidential home test for Hepatitis C and HIV from Public Health Wales here (opens in new tab). The risk of having acquired an infection is very low.

You can also check the symptoms for Hepatitis C and HIV on the NHS Wales symptom checkers web pages (opens in new tab).
