Jules Rose argued that the only way the Scottish Government could avoid the truth coming to light in the public was to provide a full and honest account and accept responsibility.

The SNP Government’s Health Secretary Humza Yousaf has refused yet again to call a public inquiry into the disgraced neurosurgeon Professor Sam Eljamel as he is accused of trying to fob patients off with a ‘concession’.

So far, 67 [patients] have come forward demanding to know the truth about why the surgeon was allowed to permanently damage their lives via botched operations – and why there has been no accountability.

Mid Scotland and Fife MSP Ms Smith said: “I am grateful to Humza Yousaf, for his engagement, and the sympathy he expressed to the former patients of Professor Eljamel.”

“But the key issue remains – absolutely no-one is taking responsibility for the appalling suffering that the former patients are having to endure or for the lack of accountability within the health system.”

“There are now 67 former patients who have come forward, each with their own harrowing story, and l suspect there are more who have also suffered. They deserve justice too.”
