Transplant experts to discuss information for patients

Transplant experts from across the UK will meet next month to discuss whether or not procedures can be tightened up in the aftermath of the two men who died after receiving an infected kidney.

Robert "Jim" Stuart, 67, and Darren Hughes, 42, were given kidneys infected with meningitis-causing worms in 2013.

Both died following the operations at Cardiff's University Hospital of Wales.

A coroner has said the surgeon cannot be criticised for accepting the organs.

The body responsible for coordinating organ transplants says it is looking at ways to improve the information given to patients before operations.

BBC Wales Health Correspondent Owain Clarke reports.
