'Hostile' St George's Hospital surgeons had to seek mediation Feuding surgeons at a troubled cardiac unit worked in a culture of hostility, tribalism and mistrust, inspectors say.
Complex heart operations were moved out of London's St George's Hospital in September after a leaked document revealed a "toxic" row had contributed to an above average death rate.
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) said mediation worked only briefly, with "poor behaviour" soon returning.
The trust said its cardiac surgery was safe and improvements had been made. BBC News
