Commenting on reports today that children with cancer have had to be moved from Glasgow to Aberdeen for treatment over infection concerns, Scottish Labour’s health spokesperson Monica Lennon said:

“How long is this going to be allowed to continue?

“Scotland’s sickest children are being let down time and time again.

“Parents say they have lost confidence in our hospitals and the health boards. "It’s a disgrace.

“Forcing the families of children with cancer to travel long distances to access care, adds unnecessary strain to an already difficult situation.

“Sick children should be able to find treatment close to their family and friends.

“Nicola Sturgeon must put patient safety before the SNP and finally agrees to an independent public inquiry into the crisis-hit QEUH and Edinburgh Sick Kids.”
