Chair calls for further information

Date 17th December 2020

Lord Brodie has reiterated today in a video appeal  for anyone with relevant information to come forward to assist our investigations and reminded interested parties that the deadline to apply for Core Participant is closing soon.

Since the Inquiry launched in August, we have heard from representatives of patients and families affected by the issues that arose from the construction of the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital Campus (QEUH) and the Royal Hospital for Children and Young People and Department of Clinical Neurosciences in Edinburgh.

Specific lines of investigation have emerged from the information gathered so far, including the adequacy of ventilation, water contamination and other matters impacted on patient safety and care.

We would like to ensure that we are capturing everyone’s experiences as the Inquiry makes progress in the New Year, and urge anyone with information to come forward.

Earlier in November, Lord Brodie, issued a call for applications for Core Participant status. Under the Inquiry Rules 2007 core participants can include individuals, organisations or entities with a significant interest in an important aspect of the matters to which the Inquiry relates.

If you believe this may apply to you, please apply before the deadline of 31 December 2020. Further information on Core Participants can be found here. Alternatively, if you have any questions regarding this process, you can contact

You do not need to be a Core Participant to submit information and can do so at any time. Please contact our team on to discuss any information you may hold.

Further updates on the progress of the Inquiry will be announced in the New Year, but you can find out more about the Order of Events here.
