I watched a Beeb programme the other night about how we imported factor 8 in
contaminated blood from the USA who paid anyone to give blood. This Factor 8
was used to offset the problems associated with Haemophilia. Unfortunately
the contaminated blood caused patients to contract HIV and Hepatitus 'C'.
Other countries who suffered the same disaster prosecuted their
pharmaceutical and health authorties with some of those responsible getting
prison terms. The UK is still denying responsibility although Kenneth
Clarke, Minister of State for Health (1982-85) at the time was aware of
the catastrophy unfolding.
