1 March, 2021 - by Colm Gildernew

Sinn Féin MLA Colm Gildernew has welcomed the announcement of additional payments for those affected by the contaminated blood scandal. 

Colm Gildernew said: 

"I welcome the fact that those whose partner or spouse died as a result of the contaminated blood scandal will receive extra financial support. 

"This will mean additional payments of up to £33,500 will be made to those affected. 

"This extra support will help those dealing with the life-long impact of the contaminated blood scandal and is an important recognition of what happened."
