    The first minister says the casenote review looked at 118 episodes of infection in 84 children at the hospital. All families except one had been contacted and information was shared.

    Ms Sturgeon says serious attempts had been made to contact the family.

    Mr Sarwar says Ms Sturgeon is missing "the fundamental point" - that the review happened as a result of parents.

    Quote Message: This scandal involved denials, bullying of clinicians, cover-ups, and parents of sick children being blamed for their illnesses. Clinicians have been raising the alarm for years. The result of inaction is tens of children getting infections and tragically two children dying. from Anas Sarwar Scottish Labour leader
