An Aberdeenshire mother is launching legal action against NHS Grampian over failings that led to her 11-year-old daughter being left wheelchair-bound and unable to return to school.

The legal action, launched by Helen Goss, claims NHS Grampian is responsible for "multiple failings" during her daughter, Anna's, treatment and care after she became unwell when she contracted CV19 in 2020.

The action alleges that requests for referrals to paediatric services of immunology and neurology were refused.

The claim adds that the failings from the health board were avoidable and led to Anna's condition worsening.

Helen told BBC Scotland News: "I want to make it very clear that this is not about the money, I don't care about the money.

"What I want is an apology for Anna, and accountability."

NHS Grampian said it would not comment on individual patient cases.
