STAFF at a pediatric cancer ward in Glasgow were forced to self-isolate after violating coronavirus restrictions, it has been reported.

The Daily Record reports that more than 40 people were said to have gathered for a party at a pub in the city.

And a source said the staff all worked in the oncology ward at the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow.

The department was at the center of the polluted water scandal.

The health board said there were no impacts on patient services as a result of the incident.

And that “not jeopardized by positive staff testing or self-isolation”.

A Health Council spokesperson said: “At NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, we regularly remind staff of the importance of following current COVID-19 guidelines, both on and off work.

“We cannot confirm at any time that patients have been endangered because staff tested positive or had to self-isolate in connection with the referenced event.

“There was no impact on service and the affected employees have all returned to work since then.”

NHS GGC has been contacted for comment by the Scottish Sun.
