Compensation sought for surgical error

A man is seeking compensation from the NHS after brain tissue was removed unnecessarily during surgery, reports the Guardian.

The 63-year-old had gone into hospital for a biopsy after a tumour had been found on his pituitary gland, however the surgeon allegedly removed healthy brain tissue instead of tissue from the tumour. The tumour turned out to be benign, and could have been controlled without the need for surgery.

John Tunney has been left with restricted vision and permanent brain damage. University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust has admitted liability, and an assessment will now take place to evaluate the long-term care Mr Tunney will need before a settlement figure is agreed.
