Dear Department of Health and Social Care,
Explanation of payment scheme depends on 'country of infection' But NHS was not devolved. BRITISH NHS. This decision creates difference leading to inequality and discrimination against non hemophiliac victims
Victims in 70 and 80s years were infected by UK NHS

Yours faithfully,

Mary Mccluskey

Department of Health and Social Care,

Dear Ms Mccluskey,
Thank you for your correspondence of 7 February about infected blood.


Responsibility for the infected blood payment schemes is a matter for each
devolved administration.  Although the NHS may not have been devolved when
the infection of blood occurred, each administration has made different
choices in relation to its payment schemes. 


The Freedom of Information Act only applies to recorded information such
as paper or electronic archive material.  As your correspondence asked for
general information, rather than requesting recorded information or
documentation, it did not fall under the provisions of the Act.


I hope this reply is helpful.


Yours sincerely,
Malcolm Jones
