The 2018/19 audit of NHS Lothian: Delay to the opening of the Royal Hospital for Children and Young People

 

The 2018/19 audit of NHS Lothian: Delay to the opening of the Royal Hospital for Children and Young People

Caroline Gardner, Auditor General for Scotland said: 
 "It's clear that the checks and balances around the construction of the new children's hospital didn't work, and the public inquiry may want to consider why that happened after similar issues had emerged around the building of schools in Edinburgh.
 "It would also be beneficial to understand the role played by all the parties involved, and to explore why the issues that emerged at Glasgow's Queen Elizabeth hospital didn’t prompt greater scrutiny in Edinburgh."
