Article: 53/4703

In October 2019, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (NHSGG&C) requested that Health Protection Scotland (HPS) provide independent expert support to review the data being used to inform their risk assessment and decision making in relation to wards 6A and 4B at Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QEUH) and Royal Hospital for Children (RHC). A report published on 26 November 2019 provides a summary of the work undertaken, the findings and the recommendations. The aim of the report was to review NHSGG&C paediatric haemato-oncology data and investigate the suspected increase in environmental gram-negative blood cultures in the paediatric haemato-oncology population.

The report along with a summary is available on the HPS website.
