PostSubject: UK monsters: NHS tainted blood shame: Secret files reveal health bosses knew for FIVE years patients were being infected with deadly contaminated samples   Wed Jul 05, 2017 1:35 am

Patients were given deadly contaminated blood for at least five years after health officials became aware of the danger, damning documents reveal.
Newly unearthed minutes of meetings held in 1980 and 1981 show that officials consciously put patients at risk during a scandal which killed 2,000 people.



Scientists were so sure the blood was dangerous, they even planned to use victims as guinea pigs to develop a new test for hepatitis, say the papers, which are likely to play a central role in a major civil action to be lodged at the High Court today, in which 300 families of victims are suing the Government.
The minutes show officials knew at least 50 patients a year were becoming infected with hepatitis. Despite this, the supply of contaminated blood was not stopped until 1986.
