To ask the Scottish Government how it will implement each of the recommendations in the paper, Clinical Review of the Impacts of Hepatitis C: Short Life Working Group Report for the Scottish Government.
Answered by: Joe FitzPatrick 20 September 2018
I will soon be meeting Haemophilia Scotland and the Scottish Infected Blood Forum to discuss the clinical review group's recommendations. Some of the group's recommendations are already implemented, but, for those which are not yet implemented, if the Scottish Government agrees to take them forward in full, they will be implemented by the Scottish Infected Blood Support Scheme, managed by NHS National Services Scotland.
