Is this aphid or sap sucker damage?

This is a currant bush in the back. The young gean in the front has aphid damage on all the young leaves too

infection, maybe with an insect vector making entry points or carrying the agent?

what ever it is get rid of the affected bits, give them a wash(2 birds one set of soapy water ie remove insects and remove any honeydew etc)

if it spreads get ruthless, tis sad to cull stuff, but it protects the rest

That symptom would be called a gall, or perhaps a blister gall. Reminds me of Red blister mites in pear.
Googled red blister gall current and found that you're right about it being aphids (most likely) https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?PID=491
Seems as though you could expect to find the culprits below the blisters

I clear off the affected leaves..ends up as tip pruning.
