UK: Apology is wanted by patients who are contaminated by tainted blood

IT WAS a transfusion that was supposed to help Sally Vickers deal with a blood condition, but she says it has given her a death sentence.

Those are the stern words from the 53-year-old who was pumped full of contaminated blood more than 30 years ago.
