Glasgow health board bosses have confessed to paying private investigators to spy on the families of dead patients.
NHSGGC admitted to using an external firm to conduct Big Brother-style monitoring on critical patients and relatives at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QEUH).
Previously revealed by the Sunday Mail, NHSGGC were found to have employed a scheme called “social listening” to check online posts by individuals they keep on a list, including people with questions as to what’s gone wrong at the £842million Glasgow super-hospital.
It has now come to light that health chiefs are paying a private company to conduct the spying on their behalf using taxpayers’ money, reports the Sunday Mail.
Scottish Labour leader Anas Sarwar blasted the health board bosses, saying: “It is utterly obscene that taxpayer money is being spent this way.”
