Following Government guidelines, we have temporarily closed all of our offices and our staff are now all working from home using secure technologies to ensure they are able to continue to progress with existing and new cases as normal.

I was sad to see that despite the government advising us that hospital acquired infections are decreasing, a ward at a Glasgow hospital closed earlier this week, as a result of an outbreak of C-Difficile.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde confirmed that higher than expected cases of the potentially fatal bacteria were discovered at Gartnavel General Hospital in Glasgow.

Sadly 2 people died in the ward.  In the first case, the death was found not to be related to the superbug as the patient had been suffering from serious underlying medical problems but tests were being carried out in relation to the second death.

A handful of patients were also confirmed as having contracted C-Diff but are said to be improving. 

Dr Craig Williams, who is in charge of the outbreak control team advised that as soon as the monitoring systems identified an increase in the C-Diff levels on the ward immediate action was taken and he assured the public that all appropriate infection control measures were in place.

I hope that they have managed to contain the bug as it is a very nasty one to get and can be fatal.  Since the previous outbreaks of the superbug the government has put in new measures which mean that hopefully outbreaks can be contained better.
