Update on Bristol Pandemrix Compensation Appeal Hearing

1 February 2016

Our chair Matt O'Neill was a witness at a court hearing in Bristol on 26 January 2016 in support of an application to an appeal tribunal for payment under the Vaccine Damage Payment Act 1979. This was in support of a child that developed narcolepsy after receiving the Pandemrix Swine Flu Vaccine. It is important to us all as the main requirement is to define the level of disability associated with narcolepsy and although this case obviously relates to an individual, please share this update to show your support for the family concerned.
