Date lodged: 13 June 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what discussions it has had with NHS Lothian regarding the reported hot water pipe failure at the new Royal Hospital for Children and Young People in Edinburgh; what damage was caused by the incident, and what impact this will have on the opening of the facility.

Answered by: Shona Robison 19 June 2018

The Scottish Government are in regular contact with NHS Lothian about the new Royal Hospital for Children and Young People in Edinburgh and we have been advised that the hot water pipe failure is unlikely to impact on the overall programme of works and the building remains on course to be completed in autumn 2018.
