Kettering Hospital: Eye drug error consultant suspended

Kettering Hospital: Eye drug error consultant suspended A hospital consultant is to be suspended from the medical register for nine months for injecting a patient's eye with the wrong form of a drug.

Mr Pammal Ashwin admitted using an undiluted form of the drug Ocriplasmin, which should have been diluted, to treat a patient's eye condition at Kettering General Hospital in May 2014.

A tribunal was told that the patient later suffered a retinal detachment. It ordered that Mr Ashwin be suspended and his case then reviewed. BBC News
