Milly Main Biography
Who was Milly Main ?
The police will investigate the death of Milly Main in a cancer ward for children.
Last night it was reported that there would be a criminal investigation into the case of the ten-year-old boy, who was being treated for leukemia. Her death is one of four being investigated at the hospital.
Milly from Lanark died in August 2017 at the Royal Hospital for Children (RHC) at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QEUH) in Glasgow.
The young woman had received a bone marrow stem cell transplant, but became seriously ill with an infection and her condition deteriorated.
Her mother, Kimberly Darroch, believes that the NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde should be punished after she claimed that staff tried to cover up the true nature of her young daughter’s death, leaving her to find out two years later in the media.
Miss Darroch’s evidence was read this week in an investigation in Edinburgh that is examining problems at both the QEUH and the Royal Hospital for Children and Young People in Edinburgh.

In her statement, Miss Darroch said: “My opinion is that the hospital should be closed. I don’t think it’s safe. I feel like the board of health should be punished for all of this. In my eyes, what happened to my daughter is murder. ”
The Daily Record also reported that police will investigate the deaths of two other children and that of a 73-year-old woman.
The news came when a father whose son was also treated for cancer at the RHC said doctors secretly prescribed a “cocktail” of drugs to prevent him from catching a yeast infection.

David Campbell’s six-year-old son began treatment for an eye tumor in 2018. Campbell told Scottish Hospitals Inquiry that they did not tell him that a drug, posaconazole, was part of his son’s medical plan. He said: “All we got was a generic leaflet that they put under the door to say that it was a medicine that was going to be given to children as a protocol, it was better to be safe than sorry.”
Posaconazole can stop yeast infections in people whose immune systems are compromised.
Campbell said his son should have been in a safe and sterile environment. He said, “It doesn’t do well, give them an antidote and let the snake keep biting them.”
The investigation heard that Campbell wrote Jonathan Best, director of operations for NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, on January 6 last year about his concerns.
According to a statement from Campbell, Best responded that the board of health was aware of the issues in the wards in 2018.
Campbell told the investigation: “I can’t understand it at all, especially after the 2017 whistle-blowing tests of senior doctors and people in respectable positions in the healthcare environment.”
He added: “There is a massive cover-up here.”
The investigation in Edinburgh, chaired by Lord Brodie, continues.
A Scottish Police spokesperson told MailOnline: ‘The Crown Prosecutor’s Office (COPFS) Fiscal Service has asked the Scottish Police to investigate a series of deaths on the campus of Queen Elizabeth University Hospital , in Glasgow. Our investigation is at a very early stage, it would be inappropriate to comment further. ‘
A COPFS spokesperson said: ‘The Public Prosecutor has received reports in relation to the deaths of three children and a 73-year-old woman on the campus of Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Glasgow.
“The investigation into the deaths is ongoing and families will continue to be informed regarding any significant events.”
The spokesperson added: “The Crown Office and the Procurator Fiscal Service are committed to supporting the work of the Scottish Hospitals Investigation and contributing positively and constructively to that work.”
A spokesperson for Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow said: “We are aware of the early Scottish Police investigations into these cases, but it would be inappropriate for us to comment further.”
