Surgeon from Leicester linked to deaths of eight patients

Health bosses in Leicester have confirmed that they've asked specialists to review the work of a liver surgeon who once worked for them.

Consultant surgeon David Berry has been banned from doing any further liver operations by the General Medical Council. He's been linked to the avoidable deaths of eight patients in South Wales.

This evening the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust confirmed Mr Berry worked for them at the Leicester General Hospital between August 1999 and February 2011.

Emma Rush is a solicitor and says any patients in the Midlands with concerns should speak out.

There is a helpline number - 0808 1788337.
