Cambridge:Inquiry Into Surgical Mistakes

An investigation's underway after four major surgical mistakes at Addenbrooke's.

The hospital's apologised after surgeons operated on the wrong part of one patient's body, a wrong implant was inserted in another operation and surgical items were left inside two other patients.

A Cambridge University Hospitals spokesman said:

"We deeply regret these incidents and have apologised to the four patients. Fortunately none of them came to any permanent harm."

"This hospital has one of the best records in the NHS for patient safety but we are investigating and will learn from these events. We have already taken action to minimise the risk of them happening again."
