Ninewells C difficile inquiry : MSP calls for more online access for those who believe they have relevant information

29 January 2010

Marlyn Glen is asking Health Secretary Nicola Sturgeon to ensure that the website of Lord Maclean’s Vale of Leven Hospital Inquiry carries more details of its extension to include the recent outbreak of C difficile at Ninewells.

This is to allow those who believe that they have information that is relevant to the inquiry into the Ninewells outbreak will be made aware of the public inquiry’s website and how to contact it online.

The inquiry into the C-difficile-related deaths at Vale of Leven has a website at :

Ms. Glen said,

"The remit of the inquiry was extended to include Ninewells only earlier this month, and understandably, the website concerns itself chiefly with Vale of Leven at the moment.

" However, prominence should now be given online acknowledging the eventual Ninewells proceedings.

"I am asking the Health Secretary to ensure that this appears on the inquiry site.

"Alternatively, a new, additional website specifically concerned with Ninewells could be set up, along with a specific e-mail address related to Ninewells rather than related to Vale of Leven as at present."


Those who believe that they have information that is relevant to the Inquiry should contact the Inquiry Secretary by email at:

or by post at:
Vale of Leven Hospital Inquiry,
3rd Floor, Lothian Chambers,
59-63 George IV Bridge,
Edinburgh, EH1 1RN.

Or by phone on : (0131) 240 6809
