– Robert Law, who contracted cancer after a transplant
I am encouraged they have admitted liability, but it needs more than an apology. The public needs to be reassured these things will not happen because the right measures are in place.
The NHS has issued an apology after two kidney transplant patients contracted cancer from donated organs. 59-year-old Robert Law, from Wirral, and 46-year-old Gillian Smart, from St Helens, were both told they had the disease after life-saving opertions at Royal Liverpool Hospital.
