In a statement put out by her office today, they said she was found collapsed at her home last Wednesday by her partner.

The statement said that the East Dunbartonshire MP “imminent risk to lift was identified and she was admitted to hospital for emergency neurosurgery”.

The MP, who booted out then-Lib Dem boss Jo Swinson last year, is now in “good spirits” and able to speak with her family.

She paid tribute to all those who have looked after her and helped in “saving her life”.

The statement said:

“On Wednesday, Amy was found by her partner collapsed at home, suffering from a brain haemmorhage related to a previously manageable medical condition.

“Imminent risk to life was identified and she was admitted to hospital for emergency neurosurgery.

“Thanks to the immense skill and response of the medical team involved in her care, Amy was able to successfully pull through the operation and is now stable in hospital.

“She wishes to put on record her enormous love and gratitude to all involved in her care – the first response and ambulance crew, accident and emergency staff, the neurological surgeons and the wonderful nursing team – who have all played a role in, undoubtedly, saving her life.”
