Too little, too late
WITH each passing day, it becomes painfully clear that the SNP government is losing control of the NHS.
Health Secretary Jeane Freeman made clear yesterday that she had no confidence in health board chiefs in Glasgow after two child patients died amid concern over a possible link with contaminated tap water.
Now, in another astonishing admission, we learn that up to 150 children at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow may have been affected by tainted water.
It is a disgraceful episode that has been characterised by obfuscation and downright secrecy at every turn.
Miss Sturgeon’s government has been a highly secretive operation from day one. It was only the dogged work of newspaper journalists that succeeded in dragging the truth about this controversy out of the NHS and the Scottish Government.
It will take more than a ministerial apology to restore public trust in the Government’s ability to run our hospitals.
