“There are no concerns about the current mortality rates in liver resection procedures carried out at the University Hospitals of Leicester.

This is specialist surgery and there are a number of reasons why this might be the case, so rather than speculate we have asked the Royal College of Surgeons to carry out an independent, impartial review of Professor Berry’s cases and once that review is complete we will report back
MI5 chief Andrew Parker will not appear before a group of MPs next year after the Home Secretary refused the request.
Mr Parker and the Prime Minister's national security adviser, Sir Kim Darroch, were invited to appear before the Home Affairs Select Committee and give evidence to its inquiry into counter-terrorism.
But Committee chairman Keith Vaz has received two letters from Theresa May and David Cameron respectively declining the requests.
Mr Vaz said, "Ministers should take care not to dictate to parliamentary committees which witnesses can be called and for what reasons".
The Committee was hoping to grill them over the publication of information contained in top-secret documents leaked by US National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden.
The personal assistants accused of defrauding Nigella Lawson and Charles Saatchi were "cagey" and "secretive" about where they got their designer clothes, a court has heard.
Elisabetta "Lisa" Grillo was taken ill and had to be led from the dock as evidence about her was given by her former colleague Alice Binks, but she returned to the courtroom after a brief break.
Ms Binks, who now works for ITV, said: "Francesca would say that she got them [designer clothes] from, like, a thrift shop or from eBay at a heavy discount,"
"Elisabetta always had nice handbags. She would always say that they were from discount stores.
"They were always quite cagey and would sometimes get angry if you asked what they'd done at the weekend and were always quite secretive about their personal lives."
Lloyds Banking Group's incentive schemes rewarded staff with "champagne bonuses" and put advisers under pressure to hit sales targets or face demotion, according to the Financial Conduct Authority's (FCA) investigation.
Those who failed to meet sales targets could face demotion and a pay cut of as much as 50 per cent.
More than 200 sales advisers at Lloyds TSB received a bonus even when all of their sales were unsuitable or potentially unsuitable, the report stated.
The FCA said in the worst case it had seen, one adviser sold insurance products to himself, his wife and a colleague to prevent himself being demoted.
A man who killed his ex-partner and her seven-month-old son has been described as being "clearly evil and dangerous beyond measure".
Wesley Williams used a ligature to carry out the "chilling, casual and calculated" killings of Yvonne and Harrison Walsh, who were found dead in their beds in June.
Jailing Williams for a minimum of 29 years at Birmingham Crown Court, Mr Justice MacDuff described the 29-year-old cannabis user as being "clearly evil and dangerous beyond measure".
Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich said he invited all parties, including the opposition, for talks to find a political compromise to a growing political crisis.
In a statement on his website, Yanukovich said the opposition should not refuse and should "not go down the road of confrontation and ultimatums". EU and US officials had demanded he launch a dialogue with all parties after more than two weeks of protests in central Kiev.
The mystery of a man who was reportedly gesticulating gibberish during the memorial to Nelson Mandela has deepened as no authorities connected with the event claim they do not to know who he is.
The government, which was officially in charge of the ceremony said it had tried and failed to get to the bottom of the matter:
"Government is looking in to this matter but has not been able to conclude this inquiry due to the demanding schedule of organising events," Presidency Minister Collins Chabane told a news conference.
Jacob Zuma's spokesman Mac Maharaj said he was checking the reports, while the SABC state broadcaster, which covered the memorial, said it was not involved as it had its own on-screen signers.
The ruling African National Congress (ANC) also professed no knowledge, even though several television clips from a big party meeting a year ago showed the same man gesticulating on stage alongside Zuma.
"I don't know this guy. He doesn't work for the ANC. It was a government event. Ask them," spokesman Jackson Mthembu said.
