Responding to the statement from the Cabinet Secretary for Health, on the inquiry into infections at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Scottish Liberal Democrat spokesperson for health Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP commented:
“If this inquiry is going to reassure the public, as it must do, there has to be absolute transparency. The revelations this week show that so far, that has not happened.
“Families will be following these developments and reflecting on their own experiences. People are anxious and are right to expect clarity about what has happened.
“It is in the interests of everyone involved for openness and honesty to be central to what happens going forward.”
