Welcome to The Skipton Fund

The Skipton Fund is a UK-wide ex gratia payment scheme to make payments to certain people who were infected with hepatitis C through treatment with NHS blood or blood products prior to September 1991 and other persons eligible for payment in accordance with the scheme's provisions.

The History of the Skipton Fund

The Skipton Fund was established on 25 March 2004 by the Department of Health (England), acting for and on behalf of the Secretary of State for Health, the Scottish Ministers, the National Assembly for Wales and the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety (Northern Ireland) (together "the UK health administrations"), to administer the scheme and make payments to relevant claimants on behalf of each of the UK health administrations.

Scottish Ministers have adopted the Skipton Fund as a scheme under section 28 (Infection with hepatitis C as a result of NHS treatment etc) of the Smoking, Health and Social Care (Scotland) Act 2005.

Skipton Fund Regular Payments Friday 29th April 2016

The Skipton Fund annual payment is usually increased in line with the Consumer Prices Index (CPI) in April each year. However, the CPI fell by 0.1% in the year to September 2015 so the Government has confirmed that the annual amount will not be reduced and will remain the same as in the previous year.

The Skipton Fund regular payment for living recipients of the Stage 2 lump sum for the year 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2017 will therefore be £14,749 and will be paid in 11 monthly instalments of £1,229 and 1 of £1,230 or 4 quarterly instalments of £3,687.25.
