Drainage Problems Threaten Existence of $180 Million USD Scottish Hospital


The new £150m hospital for children in Edinburgh may have to be "ripped down" amid safety concerns, a senior trade union official has warned. Tom Waterson said drainage at the building is a more pressing matter than the ventilation issues which saw the postponement of its official opening. He also claimed NHS Lothian had paid millions of pounds in a settlement to help resolve some of the problems.
