Consultant Radiologist, Apologized For Misreporting Breast Cancer Scans
THE doctor, Amjad Husien, working at the Trafford General center apologized today for all the distress and suffering of his patients. He was accused of misreporting the breast cancer scans, which led to twenty-two women being given the all-safe and fine decision. But now seventeen of those women are very serious because their treatment was delayed by up to two years.

A spokeswoman for Trafford General said that Dr Husien is taking home his full salary (Ģ75,000/ year). Dr Husien's colleagues first raised concerns about his work months before he was suspended.

But when it was checked his works were satisfactory. Again issues were raised against his work, which led to the full investigation in to the matter. Dr Husian had qualified in Baghdad, Iraq, (1977) before studying in Scotland.

He previously worked at the Stockport's Stepping Hill Hospital before he shifted to Trafford Healthcare Trust.
