Thompsons are delighted to collectively represent the families at the upcoming Public Inquiry into the C-Diff deaths at the Vale of Leven hospital, Alexandria.
Public Inquiries are a big part of our work and are often a vital stage which allows victims and their families to gain answers to questions that may have weighed on their minds for years. We realise that answers come before compensation and that is why we aim to provide our clients with Answers first, Compensation second and lastly Closure.
We fought hard for the investigation into C-Diff at the Vale of Leven to be extended into a national public inquiry. Our decision was vindicated again this week when a report by the Healthcare Environment Inspectorate into cleanliness at Dundee’s Ninewells Hospital revealed there was room for improvement.
An action plan has been introduced to review the role of the hospital’s infection control manager and management procedures.
5 people died as a direct result of C-Diff infection in Ninewells hospital between October and November last year.
