Health Board criticised for surgery 'at limit of doctor's ability'

Abertawe Bro Morgannwg Health Board has been criticised for its care of a man with a bowel complaint who then died after surgery.

A report from the Public Services Ombudsman found that he was not properly informed about the risks of the surgery and the operation was a complex procedure at the limits of the surgeon's skill.

Allan King's partner Dorothy Dorothy Wilson told ITV News' Rob Osborne that she feels that Allan "wouldn't have entered into surgery if he had known what he was going into."
