Burn patient compensated over no consent operation

A woman who has had about 40 operations to tackle third degree burns has been compensated after being given a skin graft she did not consent to.

Tammie Stanley, who was injured when she was eight weeks old, went to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford for an operation in 2014.

But after going in for a Z-plasty operation, she was instead given skin grafts.

Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust apologised "for [the] pain and distress that this has caused her".
