Statement from Professor Craig White, Divisional Clinical Lead
As you may be aware following a letter sent to you by the Chairman and Chief Executive of NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, I was appointed by the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport to ensure that the voices of patients and families within the paediatric haemato oncology service are heard and that information and responses to questions and concerns are provided.
Ongoing issues relating to infection prevention, management and control at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital and the Royal Hospital for Children have resulted in NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Board being escalated to Stage 4 of the NHS Board Performance Escalation Framework for matters relating to infection control matters related to governance, communication, engagement and public confidence. Professor Fiona McQueen, Chief Nursing Officer for Scotland will be Chairing the Oversight Board. I will be a member of the Oversight Board and will also be Chairing an Engagement and Communication Sub-Group.
I want to ensure that our work is informed by feedback on your experiences, that you have the opportunity to tell me about your preferences for further communication or action required and raise any specific concerns or matters where you would like to receive a response or see further action taken.
A survey has been developed for you to provide your response. This can be accessed online at:
