A WIDOWER is suing an NHS board for £150,000 after his wife of more than 40 years caught hepatitis B in hospital and died.
Pam Shaw, 61, got the illness from another patient on her ward at Ninewells in Dundee. Dirty equipment has been blamed as the most likely cause.
Her husband John, 66, accuses NHS Tayside of negligence. He wants damages for the grief and sorrow he continues to suffer and for his distress at the manner of Pam’s death.
