NHS Grampian has been accused of breaching a patient's human rights after an elderly woman was injected with drugs against her will.

Barbara Glidden, 74, was given anti-psychotic drugs at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary last year.

The Scottish Public Services Ombudsman has upheld a complaint, and recommended the health board apologises and reviews the care of similar patients.

NHS Grampian said it would apologise and was developing an action plan.

Mrs Glidden said: "It has taken a long time but I was determined I was going to win."
