Subject: vCJD--Baroness Neuberger asked Her Majesty's Government: guidance and counselling vCJD contamination from plasma products
Date: November 19, 2004 at 1:59 pm PST


Baroness Neuberger asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the Health Protection Agency will ensure that all medical and other health practitioners provide guidance and counselling to those young people who have received letters warning of the possible risk of vCJD contamination from plasma products in their National Health Service treatment.

18 Nov 2004 : Column 1604

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Health (Lord Warner): My Lords, as I indicated to the noble Baroness on 28 October in my reply to her supplementary question, the notification exercise by the Health Protection Agency is being delivered through the 150 clinicians who are treating people with haemophilia and bleeding disorders, and patients with primary immunodeficiency. These specialist clinicians are known to their patients and are best placed to advise and counsel them and to present this complex information about risk to them, irrespective of their age.
