A mum is suing a scandal-hit hospital she claims covered up ward contamination by accusing her of trying to murder her disabled daughter.

Kirsteen Cooper was arrested and thrown in a police cell in 2017 after senior managers at the Royal Hospital for Children (RHC) in Glasgow wrongly said she tried to harm cerebral palsy sufferer Baillie.

The mum of three was made aware of the allegation just days after complaining of hygiene failings on the ward where her four-year-old daughter was being treated.

But now that the hospital is at the centre of a major public inquiry into child deaths and contamination, Kirsteen believes her case was an attempt at a “blatant cover-up”.

Kirsteen is taking legal action against NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde after the health board failed to apologise even when allegations against her were found to be completely false.
