GLASGOW’S health board has released more details about the £75million court fight against the firm responsible for building the city’s troubled super-hospital.

Legal proceedings have been raised against Multiplex for ‘losses and damages’ incurred for a catalogue of failings at the £842million Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QEUH) since in opened in April 2015.

Official documents show NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde is seeking compensation for problems with the water system and ventilation - linked to patient deaths - the glass panels on the exterior of the building, the heating system and the atrium roof as well as issues with internal fabric moisture ingress and the pneumatic transport system that links all the hospitals on the site.

Damages are being sought for ongoing and future costs associated with major repairs and improvement works at the site.

The health board has already paid out more than £1million to install a new ventilation system at the Royal Hospital for Children.

A number of separate inquiries are ongoing into the hospital, specifically looking at infection control procedures after a number of patients deaths including a public inquiry and a government review, ordered by Health Secretary Jeane Freeman.

Prosecutors are also probing the death of a 10-year-old boy in December 2018, and a 73-year-old woman in January 2019 after they developed the Cryptococcus infection, linked to pigeon droppings.

The parents of another child, Milly Main, have demanded a Fatal Accident Inquiry, after the 10-year-old died from an infection they believe is linked to the water supply while recovering from treatment for Leukaemia.

It has also been alleged a doctor-led probe at the QEUH found 26 cases of child cancer patients acquiring water infections in 2017.

The health board was put into level four ‘special measures’ in November amid growing concern over its performance.

Board papers detail the progress that has been made to tackle the problems already identified and for which compensation is being sought and show that work to install a new ventillation system in the children's hospital, which led to the closure of two wards, will not be completed until the Summer.

The papers also states that the board has also appointed an external group to improve staff communications after it faced criticism that families were not kept informed about infections.

Multiplex is currently involved in a £700million project to expand Glasgow University with six major academic buildings.
