A national medical expert says she would not have recommended a procedure that was botched and killed a fellow leading professor had she been given vital information about his condition.

Professor Amit Patel, a leading medic at the world-renowned Christie cancer hospital, became gravely ill and his condition was deteriorating rapidly when he was admitted to Wythenshawe Hospital in August 2021.

Medics had scrambled to try and understand the 43-year-old's illness and treat it. However, after a surgical test was recommended to try and diagnose his illness, the botched procedure ended up leaving Professor Patel with less than a 10 per cent chance of survival, and he later died.

The hearing yesterday heard that ahead of the ultimately fatal procedure, test results showed that Professor Patel was also suffering from disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC).

What are the answers here?'" Gabby, who appears on Pointless on Friday, 17 May, further explained how their neurologist proved to be an amazing source of guidance, she said: "His neurologist was brilliant, he's a brilliant communicator and told us what the options were and I was like, (to Kenny) 'We've just to get a plan together, you need to know what you're doing and then we will keep being positive about it.'" Once they had adjusted to the initial shock, they treated the ordeal as a project: "That's what we did really, once we got over the initial shock, we just really kind of focused on it as a project we had to deal with and it's a b****y awful operation." Despite the gut-wrenching diagnosis, Gabby showed remarkable resilience, revealing that deep down, she was certain she "wasn't going to lose her husband, who is also the father of her two children.
