BBC report “A health board has apologised after a patient became infected with hepatitis C during a stay in hospital. NHS Lanarkshire said it was unsure how the blood-borne virus had been transmitted to the patient in Monklands Hospital in April 2012. It wrote to seven other patients who were there at the time but said it was very unlikely that any were infected. NHS Lanarkshire said it had learned lessons and improved infection control procedures at Monklands Hospital.”
