Humza Yousaf 'disturbed' by claims NHSGGC spied on families
First Minister Humza Yousaf has said he was "disturbed" by reports of a hospital board spying on bereaved families.
NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (NHSGGC) last week admitted paying a private company to monitor the online presence of some individuals.
One of those named on the list, was widow Louise Slorance, whose husband died in an NHSGGC hospital.
Labour leader Anas Sarwar has called on the first minister to intervene.

Speaking after First Minister's Question's (FMQs), Mr Sarwar said: "This is just the latest in a litany of shameful incidents that has seen the leadership of this health board intimidate whistle-blowers, engage in a cover-up and frustrate the efforts of grieving families who are looking for justice.
"The first minister shouldn't have to wait for an inquiry to know that spying on the families of dead patients is wrong - he just needs to look at his conscience."
