What is the scheme?
The scheme provides support to people who were historically infected with hepatitis C and/or HIV following treatment with NHS:
- blood products
The Scottish Infected Blood Support Scheme (SIBSS) took over from the existing UK schemes for Scottish beneficiaries in April 2017.
Prior schemes included:
- Eileen Trust
- Macfarlane Trust
- MFET Ltd
- Skipton Fund
- Caxton Foundation
The new scheme was introduced as a result of the Scottish Financial Review commissioned by the Scottish Government.
