Anas Sarwar told Nicola Sturgeon there had been a case of deadly aspergillus in a child cancer patient around the same time, and in the same ward, as the case of tragic civil servant Andrew Slorance.

Claims have emerged about two more children dying at Scotland’s flagship hospital after contracting infections.

Scottish Labour leader Anas Sarwar said clinicians contacted him to make the allegations about the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QUEH).

He told Nicola Sturgeon there had been a case of deadly aspergillus in a child cancer patient around the same time, and in the same ward, as the case of tragic civil servant Andrew Slorance.

Father of five Andrew died at the hospital in December last year and his wife Louise accused NHS bosses of not informing her about repeated references to aspergillus in his medical notes, the Daily Record reports.
