A hospital worker has been suspended after photos of patients having operations were posted on Facebook.
The patients were not identifiable in the photos, which are believed to be taken at a hospital in Glasgow, according to the Daily Record.
A source told the paper: "Most, if not all, of the other staff were completely unaware this was happening.
"But the room where they were taken was able to be identified from the NHS insignia in the background."
The paper claimed the member of staff who put the images on the social networking site was a nurse.
A spokeswoman for NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde said: "We can confirm a member of staff has been suspended pending an internal investigation."
