Lawyers representing the family of a man whose ‘avoidable’ death was linked to suspended liver surgeon David Paul Berry have called for Cardiff & the Vale University Health Board to make the findings of its internal inquiry public.
We are shocked and deeply concerned to learn of the scale of the number of avoidable deaths linked to Mr Berry’s surgery during his short time at University Hospital Wales.
Eight avoidable deaths within just 18 months is very concerning and the health board must provide urgent answers to all those affected about how this could have happened.
Martyn Rogers who died of blood poisoning and acute liver failure on 25 July last year, a week after undergoing surgery by Mr Berry to remove tumours from his liver.
His partner Maria Davies says she is "shocked to the core" after learning the deaths of other patients may have been preventable.

A police call-handler passed information to her boyfriend during the manhunt for his friend Dale Cregan, a court has heard.
Kathryn Smith, 25, is accused of using police's computer systems while on her shift to check developments to find Cregan, who was wanted in connection with the murders of a father and son.
It is alleged she then passed on information to her boyfriend Sean Booth, 31, who lived on the same street as Cregan, which was subsequently passed onto Cregan's 56-year-old mother Anita.
All three deny a single count of misconduct in a public office: Ms Smith by looking for and disclosing confidential information and Mr Booth and Mrs Cregan by aiding and abetting her to commit the offence.
