- From the section England
A medical tribunal after the death of a Shropshire hospital patient has found that the surgeon is fit to practise.
Luigi Belcuore, from Warwickshire, died in October 2009 when attempts to close the wound in his knee went wrong at the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital in Shropshire.
The 43-year-old had been taking part in a stem cell clinical trial.
The Medical Practitioners' Tribunal Service said the case against surgeon James Richardson was not proved.
Mr Belcuore's family was awarded an undisclosed sum in compensation following his death.
