Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 1 May 2018

To ask the Scottish Government how many people with haemophilia in each NHS board area have died from (a) Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) and (b) other neurological conditions in each year since 1999.

Answered by: Shona Robison 10 May 2018

With regard to other neurological conditions, this is a matter for the UK Haemophilia Centre Doctors' Organisation which collects data related to the diagnosis, management and complications of bleeding disorders on the National Haemophilia Database. The information requested is not held centrally.

No patients with haemophilia or other bleeding disorders have been reported to have died from any form of CJD in Scotland.
