Responding to the news that a third baby has died after contracting a rare blood infection at the Princess Royal Maternity Hospital, Scottish Liberal Democrat health spokesperson Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP said:
“The news that a third baby has died after contracting this infection at the Princess Royal Maternity Hospital is extremely distressing. We are all thinking of the family at this horrible time.
“Patients will be understandably worried by the flurry of infection reports in recent months. The Health Secretary needs to ensure everything possible is done to try to get to the bottom of exactly how these infections occurred and that learning is shared with other NHS bodies.”
