Commenting on the news that 14 deaths are to be investigated following the NHS Tayside chemotherapy dosage scandal, Scottish Labour's Shadow Health Secretary, Monica Lennon MSP, said:

"The news that 14 women died after receiving lower than recommended dosages during chemotherapy treatment at NHS Tayside is deeply worrying.

"It is right that an independent expert will now investigate these deaths to give the families the answers that they need, but this should not have happened in the first place.

"The Health Secretary must ensure that all other clinical management guidelines are being met by NHS Tayside and all other health boards.

"This news comes on the back of a catalogue of failures in mental health care and many people in Tayside will now question if they can be confident with the care being provided to them."
