The Latest Settlement Proposals

TFF STATEMENT REGARDING THE LATEST SETTLEMENT PROPOSALS 20TH JULY 2016

The Forgotten Few would like to state our position with regards to the latest settlement proposals from the Department of Health.

We would like to thank our supporters in Parliament for their continued work with us in trying to bring about a just settlement for those Co-infected by contaminated blood products. We are certain that they along with us, are extremely disappointed by the proposals put forward by the DoH.

The latest proposals once again fall way short of the mark needed by this group to enable us to even consider accepting the financial package suggested, and therefore we are in no doubt that we once again, are forced to continue our fight for justice, and will do so until a satisfactory settlement can be reached.

We reject the latest piece meal offer from the DoH,  and would like to assure all Co-infected people that we will continue to campaign for a fair resolution to the scandal they have been the victims of for so many years.

A further statement of our position will follow shortly.

Thank you
