I welcome the new Diffuse Mesothelioma Payment Scheme that has been established by the Mesothelioma Act 2014. The scheme is now operational and applications are now being taken for scheme payments.

This is a huge step forward in helping victims of Diffuse Mesothelioma and their dependants access financial support. Under the new scheme, eligible applicants will receive an average payment of £123,000, before benefit recovery. Successful applicants will also receive an additional £7,000 towards legal costs.

Further information, including online applications can be found at www.mesoscheme.org.uk, and any enquiries should be directed to Gallagher Basset, the scheme administrators, at DMPS@gbtpa.com
