A mis­take but a bad one

Daily Express - - COME ON ENGLAND -

IT IS trau­matic enough to have to un­dergo a dou­ble mas­tec­tomy with­out dis­cov­er­ing on wak­ing up that you have been given the wrong type of breast im­plant. But that is what hap­pened to Donna Fine­gan-White, who was not given the tem­po­rary med­i­cal im­plants she was ex­pect­ing but in­stead cos­metic ones. It is im­per­a­tive that we find out what hap­pened.

Health Sec­re­tary Jeremy Hunt has spo­ken in the past about the need to be more open when some­thing goes wrong and that is cer­tainly the case here. Yes, the NHS is un­der pres­sure, but if we don’t re­solve this is­sue it might hap­pen again.

Donna suf­fered trauma af­ter the event, we must try to en­sure oth­ers are not sim­i­larly af­fected.
