supervision at New Cross Hospital in Wolverhampton. Our Health

Correspondent, Michele Padu`no, has this exclusive report. In 2008,

:00:31.:00:36.

having saved the life of thhs young mother, Ian Wilson was being

:00:37.:00:39.

celebrated, but the surgeon seen here on the right has now bden

:00:40.:00:43.

sacked from his job at the Pueen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.

months and at the end of th`t three months, he will be fit to rdturn to
