An elderly patient has died after an outbreak of Clostridium Difficile at Perth Royal Infirmary.

Three other elderly patients in the hospital's Tay ward have now also contracted C Diff - two still have mild symptoms of the bug and the other is recovering.

The family of grandmother Catherine Rodger who was killed by a prescription for morphine pain-killing tablets TEN times the correct strength has reacted angrily after the pharmacist escaped with a warning from his professional body.

Sprightly Mrs Rodger 74, died within hours of taking the overstrength morphine. The family’s GP Dr Salahuddin Malik of Downfield Surgery in Dundee wrote the lethal prescription, and pharmacist Andrew Nixon dispensed the massive overdose at the neighbouring Alliance Chemists.

Michelle Stewart of the families' C-Diff Justice Group said: "We welcome the extension of the Inquiry's remit to include the Ninewells outbreak, because these cases are a grim reminder that we still have a major problem with C-Diff.

"We have maintained all along that all Nicola Sturgeon's knee jerk responses would never get to the bottom of what went so terribly wrong at the Vale of Leven.

A boy who was turned away from hospital for “misusing emergency services” has been awarded £3.2 million in compensation after he was left brain damaged.

The patient, Mark Thomas, was 12 years old when he was turned away from the A&E Department of Walsall Manor.  Thomas was a fit and healthy schoolboy who he started to complain of ear infections and a stiff neck.  Blood tests were taken but the meningitis was undiagnosed by hospital staff.  Five days later his condition had failed to improve so his parents sought a second opinion and approached the casualty department of the hospital.  However his condition was not deemed serious enough and the family was sent away.

Survivors of the thalidomide tragedy are set to receive compensation from a multimillion-pound settlement with the UK government.

Campaigners have fought a long and hard battle for increased compensation for the victims who suffered from terrible deformities as a result of their mothers taking the thalidomide drug during pregnancy.  The NHS prescribed the drug in the 1950s and the 1960s as a remedy for morning sickness.
