Body parts could be via 3D printer at Birmingham's Queen Elizabeth Hospital
Body parts could soon be produced by a 3D printer thanks to pioneering technology at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.
The equipment has been part-funded by Peter McNeil, from Malvern, Worcestershire, whose life has been transformed by the hospital's specialist facial reconstruction unit.
Mr McNeil, a cancer patient who had a new nose built for him, said: "Obviously the surgeons (have) kept me alive but the prosthetic people have allowed me to carry on with my life as normal."
