Heather Bruce & Others v Tayside Health Board  CSOH 123
Claim by family of a man who died in hospital after being admitted to the accident and emergency department. Ruled that notwithstanding the fact that hospital staff failed to provide the appropriate treatment to the patient, their negligence did not cause the death and that even if they had acted earlier it would have made “no difference” to the “tragic outcome”. Decision here.
