The Scottish nursing sector of Unison, representing over 30,000 nurses, has called on all sides to stop using Mariam Hamza as a political football, and welcome the fact that a Scottish hospital can potentially provide life saving care to a dying girl.

'Unison's nursing sector committee, which met yesterday, endorsed the actions of George Galloway MP and foreign secretary Robin Cook, in attempting to save the life of a young Iraqi girl,' said Jim Devine, senior regional officer.

'One of our members who attended the committee meeting, works in the specialist unit at Yorkhill which will provide care for Mariam and she reflected that Scotland should be proud that we can potentially provide life-saving equipment for this girl.'
