A health board has apologised for providing “unreasonable” treatment to a woman fighting cancer.
The woman’s husband complained to the Scottish Public Services Ombudsmen (SPSO) about her care at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary because she was discharged before the results of a test were known and because she was not readmitted when she tested positive for a sickness bug.
An SPSO report, which does not identify the couple, said: “We considered the medical care and treatment to be unreasonable.”

An NHS Grampian spokeswoman said: “This case represents an occasion where we did not provide appropriate care or treatment to a patient. We accept the findings of the SPSO.
“We have already written to apologise but would take this opportunity to apologise again.”
