Responding to the Health Secretary’s statement on the infections at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, Scottish Liberal Democrat health spokesperson and Edinburgh Western MSP Alex Cole-Hamilton said:
“Almost 200 patients have received these warning letters and are no doubt anxiously awaiting updates.
“People have been left worried about the safety of hospitals after the recent spate of reported infections.
“The government needs to urgently establish where these moulds came from. That’s the only way we’re going to learn lessons and ensure this never happens again.”
