The death of 10-year-old Milly Main at Glasgow's super hospital has been handed over to prosecutors, it has been revealed. 

The Daily Record reported that NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde has handed the case over to the Procurator Fiscal.

This comes three years after Milly died from picking up an infection at Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QEUH) as she was recovering from leukaemia. 

A report later revealed that there had been a widespread contamination within the facility's water supply where 23 children had picked up bloodstream infections within the cancer wards of the hospital. 

Molly's parents, Kimberley Darroch and Neil Main called earlier this year for a fatal accident inquiry (FAI) to be conducted into the death of their daughter at the hospital.

They instructed solicitors and a letter was sent on their behalf to the Lord Advocate urging for a FAI to take place. 

Milly's parents claimed they had been "drip fed" information and are unable to grieve properly due to a lack of answers over her death. 

It stated: "It is almost three years since they lost their daughter and they have been denied the basic human dignity of being able to grieve the loss of their child because they still do not know what really happened or why.

“They cannot understand how they lost their child and as such their life is anchored to the past."

Anas Sarwar slammed the NHS for their delay in reporting Milly's death to prosecutors. 

He said: "Milly’s death should have been reported to the Procurator Fiscal at the time.

“At all times, the health board’s priority has been about saving its own skin, not doing what was right by Milly’s parents.

“The health board has now decided to refer the case to the Procurator Fiscal in the knowledge that Milly’s parents did so weeks ago.

"It is a cynical attempt to look like it is being proactive when it has been deliberately evasive up until now. 

“This is a painful experience for Milly’s family: it is forcing them to relive her death all over again, nearly three years after her tragic death. 

“I will not stop until there is justice for Milly’s parents, and they receive the answers they deserve.

“The NHS board has lost the trust of parents, patients and the public. Those in charge must go - allowing a truly independent investigation so that the truth comes out and something like this can never happen again."

A spokeswoman for NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde said: "The death of any child is a tragedy and we continue to offer our sympathies to Milly's family for their loss.

"Following recent concerns from Milly's family, the public interest in her death and discussions with the Cabinet Secretary for Health, we sought advice from the procurator fiscal.

"Following this advice, it was deemed appropriate to refer Milly's case to the procurator fiscal, which we have now done.

"Milly's case is also being considered as part of the review of patient episodes that Professor Marion Bain, director of infection prevention and control, will be overseeing and this will involve Milly's family in whatever way they wish."
