THE MOTHER of a 10-year-old girl who died at a city superhospital has called on health chiefs in Glasgow to resign. 

Kimberly Darroch makes her plea shortly after an official report confirmed the death of her daughter, Milly, was "probably" linked to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QEUH).

The report concluded that contaminated water in the children's department was an "important contributory factor" to the young girl's death.

Ms Darroch told the Daily Record: “I am 100 per cent certain Milly’s infection came from the water.

“I still feel like they’re not taking responsibility even though they say they have.

“It would be that the health board that are in place just now resign. That’s what I want and I think that’s only fair.”

Glasgow Times:

Milly had leukaemia from the age of five, but was in remission before contracting an infection at the QEUH in 2017.

She died in August that year, with her death certificate listing a stenotrophomonas infection of the Hickman line - a catheter used to administer drugs - as a cause of death.

Jane Grant, chief executive of NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, said: “We continue to offer our sympathies to Milly Main’s family for their loss and are sorry for any additional distress caused.

"This has been a very challenging time for patients, families and staff and I am truly sorry for this. For families, children and young people, undergoing cancer treatment is already an incredibly difficult situation and I am sorry for any further upset they have experienced.

"Whilst we have taken robust and focused action to respond to issues, and at all times made the best ­judgments we could, we accept there are times when we should have done things differently.

“The issues which arise will be part of the Scottish Hospitals Public Inquiry. The board welcomes the inquiry and will participate fully in that process.”
