A patient has been arrested after an A&E doctor was attacked twice in a Glasgow hospital. 

Dr Claire McGroarty, a trauma doctor at the Queen Elizabeth University hospital, said in an emotive Twitter post that she had been verbally and physically assaulted by the patients on a Saturday night. 

She wrote: "Lockdown restrictions eased on Friday.

"On Saturday I was verbally and physically assaulted by patients twice under the influence of alcohol.

"This wasn't acceptable pre COVID, it certainly isn't acceptable now."

The doctor has acted as a medical advisor on the time travelling drama Outlander. 

NHSGGC said one individual involved had been arrested and was due in court today.
