Scottish Labour leader Anas Sarwar says politicians have a choice to either side with families, clinicians and those campaigning for patient safety or back a culture of secrecy, cover-up and incompetence.

Photographs showing mould at Scotland’s flagship hospital have prompted calls for bosses to be sacked.

Labour leader Anas Sarwar is calling on First Minister Nicola Sturgeon to “finally do the right thing and sack the leadership at Glasgow’s Queen Elizabeth University Hospital ”.

The Scottish Labour leader said a vote to be held in the Scottish Parliament today was a line in the sand – and MSPs had to decide if they were on the side of patients and staff “or a culture of cover-ups and secrecy by managers”.

It came as Labour showed photographs revealing examples of mould growth inside the hospital.

The photographs come from an academic paper published earlier this year exposing the risks of water in seeding infection inside hospitals.
