A surgeon is under investigation after being accused of burning his initials onto a patient's liver during a transplant operation


A surgeon has been suspended after allegedly branding his initials into a transplant patient's liver.
Consultant Simon Bramhall, 48, is accused of burning 'SB' onto a patient's liver as he operated on him.
The letters were spotted by a colleague during routine surgery on the unnamed patient.
It is now feared the letters may have been imprinted onto hundreds of other transplant recipients.
Mr Bramhall has worked at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, West Mids, for more than ten years.
