INFECTED BLOOD INQUIRY LEGAL REPRESENTATION FORM

Haemophilia Northern Ireland work on behalf of the Northern Ireland victims of the contaminated blood scandal. We know of the importance of strength in numbers and know that our fight for justice for Northern Ireland does not end here.

We believe strongly that while the Northern Ireland victims of the contaminated blood scandal share a common interest with our friends in England and Wales in certain areas of the inquiry there are other aspects where it is imperative that there is a distinct Northern Ireland voice and a unique Northern Ireland influence on the shape and direction of the inquiry. We can also ensure that the lessons are learned in a way that could not be achieved if we were part of one large group of victims across the UK.

We believe it is imperative that Northern Ireland victims and the organisations who support them are core participants in their own and have their own unique representation at the Inquiry.
