A Holyrood committee is to examine hospital safety following the deaths of two patients from an infection linked to pigeon droppings.
The health committee inquiry comes in the wake of the deaths at Glasgow’s Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.
The patients died after contracting a fungal infection linked to the droppings.
They included a 10-year-old boy who died in December after contracting the Crypotococcus infection.
A 73-year-old woman, who had been infected with the bug, died at the same hospital
