Have you been affected by the contaminated blood scandal?
- Credit: PA
Thousands of people were infected with Hepatitis C and/or HIV through blood products supplied by the NHS in the 1970s and 80s.
The known number of victims is around 6,000 people, but the Department of Health estimates that in reality more than 30,000 may have been infected UK-wide.
Over 2,000 people are believed to have died from the effects of these viruses.
Despite this, no prosecutions have ever been brought against anyone involved and only in Scotland has a full public inquiry been held. That concluded earlier this year but made just one recommendation. It did lead to a full apology from Prime Minister David Cameron on behalf of the government.
Many victims and their families feel let down by the way they have been treated and we would like to speak to anyone who has been impacted, whether through being infected or being a family member, for a forthcoming series.
