16 February 2010

Marlyn Glen has welcomed the announcement by NHS Tayside that it will release the findings of its own internal investigation into the recent C difficile outbreak at Ninewells Hospital, Dundee.

Ms. Glen said,

"I welcome this move by NHS Tayside which acknowledges the importance of keeping the public fully informed of its analysis of how this tragic outbreak occurred and what can be learned from it that can make the control of healthcare acquired infections more effective.

" The publication of this report will be particularly welcomed by the families involved, by the appropriate health professionals at Ninewells, and by the public who regard tackling healthcare acquired infections as one of their top health priorities.

" I shall ensure that a copy of the report can be downloaded from my website once it is made available by NHS Tayside."
