At Thompson’s we would like to reassure all our clients that as far as possible we are operating as normal. The health and safety of our staff and clients is our primary concern during this outbreak and as such we are reviewing the situation on a regular basis and will be adapting our working practices following government guidelines. However, we have had to make some minor changes to how we are doing things.

Following Government guidelines, we have temporarily closed all of our offices and our staff are now all working from home using secure technologies to ensure they are able to continue to progress with existing and new cases as normal. All face to face meetings have been cancelled, however we are continuing to hold these meetings via phone and video calls. All the team are contactable on their direct dial numbers and email should you need to speak with your solicitor, please do not hesitate to talk to us about anything during this time.

We know these are uncertain and unsettling times for many of our clients, and the wider population, and things might look a little different for the foreseeable future. But our focus remains on our dedication, knowledge and strength that we provide to all our clients. We will continue to provide updates over the coming days and weeks in accordance with official guidelines and to keep everyone informed of the situation.

As always, for any concerns, advice and updates on your case; Talk to Thompsons.

What Is Thompsons Doing To Help?

Thompsons Solicitors Scotland
Thompsons Solicitors Scotland

Thompsons Solicitors is proud of its record of fighting to secure justice for ordinary people who have lost loved ones in the care of the NHS. One of our battles has been in support of those negligently infected with Hepatitis C as a result of contaminated blood or contaminated blood products.

For ten years Thompsons campaigned alongside the Scottish Haemophilia Group’s Forum and others to win a public Inquiry into the scandal of the thousands of Scots infected by the deadly virus from NHS blood.

In 2008 we won a landmark court ruling, which held that the Lord Advocate was wrong to refuse an Inquiry into the deaths of two of our clients as a result of contracting Hep C. The ruling also held that the State had to hold an Inquiry.

That ruling helped to break the deadlock, and the Scottish Government agreed to hold a full public Inquiry. It appointed the Right Honourable Lord Penrose as Chair of the Inquiry, and hearings began in March 2009.

Penrose Inquiry findings

In 2016 the Penrose Inquiry recommended that the Scottish Government should ensure help in identifying patients who have been infected with Hep C as a result of a blood transfusion prior to September 1991, but are not yet diagnosed. With this in mind a working group was established and recommendations were implemented.
