Clinical Review of the Impacts of Hepatitis C: Short Life Working Group Report for the Scottish Government


Scottish Government
This independent clinical review commissioned by the Scottish Government assesses the impacts of chronic hepatitis C infection on the health and wellbeing of individuals affected by contaminated blood and blood products. The review recommends that Scottish Infected Blood Support Scheme beneficiaries should be able to self-assess regarding the effect hepatitis C has had on their life, and which level of payment they are entitled to as a result. In October 2018, the Scottish Government confirmed it would accept the recommendations of this report.
