NHS Tayside has been criticised over its handling of disgraced brain surgeon Sam Eljamel in a new report.

The internal due diligence review criticised health board management for putting the doctor under indirect supervision in June 2013 rather than suspending him.

BBC Disclosure first revealed claims against Prof Eljamel in 2018.

The surgeon harmed dozens of patients but was allowed to continue operating until he was suspended in late 2013.
