Breast Cancer :: Woman died from breast cancer after all-clear

A UK woman who was wrongly given the all-clear by a doctor responsible for a string of errors concerning breast cancer scans has died from the disease.

The NHS-commissioned report shows consultant radiologist Amjad Husien’s wrong all-clear diagnoses led to a review of nearly 2,500 mammograms. It also criticised procedures at Trafford NHS Trust, one of two Greater Manchester trusts he worked for.

Mr Husien, who joined Trafford Healthcare Trust in April 2003, was suspended and is the subject of an investigation by the General Medical Council.
