A specialist liver surgeon who used to work in Leicester has been suspended over the "avoidable deaths" of eight patients he operated on in south Wales.
Consultant surgeon David Paul Berry, based at University Hospital Wales, has been banned by the General Medical Council (GMC) from doing any further liver surgery.
A professional review of 31 of his patients while with the Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, found that 10 went on to die, and "eight of those 10 deaths were avoidable."
