NHS Tayside chiefs are slammed over their handling of disgraced surgeon Sam Eljamel in a bombshell new report.

The Courier understands management at the health board faces criticism over its June 2013 decision to place the rogue doctor under light-touch supervision rather than suspending him.

Eljamel was eventually removed from his post in December 2013.

He carried out more than 100 procedures during that six-month period, operating on patients in theatre with no scrutiny of his work other than a consultant neurosurgeon joining him on his ward rounds once a week.
