There have been demands for a full independent public inquiry into NHS Tayside’s handling of disgraced surgeon Professor Sam Eljamel after a damning report found patients were put at risk after warnings were ignored.

The health board yesterday apologised to more than a 100 patients who were operated on by the brain surgeon despite him being under supervision pending an investigation into malpractice.

He was alleged to have harmed dozens of patients – including leaving some with life-changing injuries – but was allowed to continue operating from June 2013 until December of that year, Scottish Labour last night demanded the entire leadership board of NHS Tayside resign.
