The long-running police probe into disgraced former NHS Tayside neurosurgeon Sam Eljamel has been escalated to a “major investigation”.

The senior detective who was leading the case told patients a specialist team has taken over the inquiry into whether the rogue doctor’s actions were criminal.

An independent neurosurgeon who has been studying files detailing the treatment of victims will soon produce his report on Eljamel.

His conclusions will be crucial in dictating whether officers can pursue criminal charges against the neurosurgeon who is alleged to have repeatedly harmed patients.
