Treloar’s recently featured in an article in the Sunday Express on the crusade to win a full and fair settlement from the NHS by former students Nick Sainsbury and others. The online version of the article can be found at http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/592179/blood-hiv-treloar-college-scam-nhs-medicine-positive-hiv.

The former students are seeking redress from the NHS for infecting 7,500 patients with life-threatening diseases such as HIV and Hepatitis C through contaminated blood products. Regrettably, one of the specialist NHS haemophilia centres in the 1970s and 1980s was based at Treloar College and some of our students were amongst the 7,500 to become infected.

We are fully supportive of Nick’s efforts, having hosted a visit here earlier this year and wish him and the other former students the best with their campaign.
