Death in the Blood paperback Laura Kuenssberg quote

Congratulations to Caroline Wheeler on the paperback publication of her book Death in the Blood: The fight for justice in the NHS infected blood scandal by Headline.

‘A gripping narrative, strengthened by Wheeler’s longstanding connection to the story’ – Financial Times

‘Moving, angering’ – The Times

In the 1970s and 1980s almost 5,000 haemophiliacs were infected with HIV or hepatitis C after being given contaminated NHS blood products. So far more than 2,800 people are known to have died in what has been described as the ‘worst treatment disaster in the history of the NHS’.

Sunday Times political editor Caroline Wheeler has been reporting on the scandal for two decades. She has been pivotal to the campaign for justice for the victims, whose stories form the heart of this book. As the long-running Infected Blood Inquiry delivers its final verdict, Death in the Blood is an unforgettable epic of human suffering, loss and survival against the odds.

Death in the Blood is out now in paperback. The Infected Blood Inquiry is expected to publish its final report on 20 May 2024.
