Nurse Pauline Cafferkey has made a full recovery from ebola, according to the Royal Free London Foundation Trust, where she was being treated.
Ms Cafferkey was discharged yesterday from the London hospital, after doctors confirmed she was well enough to return home to Scotland.
She has now been transferred to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow.
“For a second time staff… have worked incredibly hard to help me recover and I will always be grateful to them”
Ms Cafferkey first contracted the infectious disease in December 2014 while working for a charity in Sierra Leone. She recovered and was discharged in January.
But last month she was re-admitted to the Royal Free’s high level isolation unit after developing a late complication of the disease.
In a statement issued by the Royal Free today, Ms Cafferkey said: “I am forever thankful for the amazing care I have received at the Royal Free Hospital.
“For a second time staff across many departments of the hospital have worked incredibly hard to help me recover and I will always be grateful to them and the NHS,” she said.
“I am looking forward to returning to Scotland and to seeing my family and friends again,” she added.
