Contaminated blood report 'full of lies' Government officials have apologised for using a discredited report into the contaminated blood products scandal that left thousands of NHS patients infected with viruses including HIV.
Despite assurances that the "inadequate" document would be ditched, a health minister has referred to it this year, the BBC can reveal.
The government admits that the document was used for too long.
This week it will announce who will run its official inquiry into the scandal.
Critics say the whole process has taken far too long and have accused the government of a "whitewash". BBC News
