AT the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Yorkhill, Glasgow, 21 boys caught HIV from haemophilia treatments - and eight are known to have died.

This is an infection rate of 23 per cent. For the rest of Scotland the infection rate is eight per cent.

The inquiry notes that more commercially produced blood treatments were used by Yorkhill, rather than NHS supplies reflecting "preference on the part of the haemophilia consultant up to the end of 1982".

It adds that commercial products were considered "easier to use in the treatment of children," before AIDS had been identified.

At Glasgow Royal Infirmary 12 people caught HIV from blood clotting agents and 10 are known to have died.

At Edinburgh Royal Infirmary 23 patients caught the virus - all but one from products supplied by the NHS. All but four have died.

Three patients were infected in Aberdeen and two are known to have died.

Across Scotland 478 patients with bleeding disorders have been infected with Hepatitis C

A further 2,500 are thought to have caught Hepatitis C from blood transfusions

The public inquiry held hearings over 89 days between March 2011 and 2012.

Around 118,000 documents were considered and 5,000 determined to be relevant to the inquiry.

A total of 159 statements were taken from patients, relatives and other witnesses while 18 experts were called to give evidence.

There is one recommendation to prevent unnecessary suffering going forward.
