'Avoidable factors' contributed to liver patient deaths
Health chiefs have suspended a specialist liver surgeon linked to the "avoidable deaths" of eight patients he operated on in Cardiff.
A professional review of 31 of his patients found that 10 died, and "eight of those 10 deaths were avoidable".
Cardiff and Vale Health Board's medical director, Dr Graham Shortland, said: "The Royal College of Surgeons informed me they believed we had a problem with an individual surgeon."
