HCDO - Factor VIII Supply / Liberton Scotland
In a meeting of the HCDO in 1977, Prof. Blackburn states that it seems as if the PFC at Liberton Scotland has the capacity to supply factor VIII for the whole U.K.

Dr. Waiter states that plans have been made to divert plasma from South of the Border to Liberton when Mr. Watt is ready to receive it. The Factor VIII made from this plasma would return to Centres south of the Border. Agreement in principle has already been reached between the DHSS in London and the Scottish Home and Health Department.

Dr. Rainsford (of the Lord Mayor Treloar College, Hants), asks "if England and Wales would be charged for the use of the fractionation facilities in Scotland? If so, might it be as well to continue to buy commercial concentrates?"
