The vice president of the Royal College of Pathologists
, Prof James Underwood, yesterday said mistakes had been made as a result of a fundamental breakdown of communication between surgeons and pathologists.
Prof John Lilleyman, of the Royal College of Pathologists
, said: "Everything will be fully explained.
Mr Blunkett was speaking at the launch of Parents Week, organised by the NFPI, at the Royal College of Pathologists
He added that a report had concluded that there was a 'series of indefensible misdiagnoses' which indicated a level of competence insufficient for a candidate to have passed the original primary examination for membership of the Royal College of Pathologists
Yesterday the Royal College of Pathologists
issued a new set of guidelines on parental consent.
Mr Mayer said he was told to make the clear-out just days after new guidelines were issued in March by the Royal College of Pathologists
, for hospitals to search records to see if specimens had been kept without relatives' permission.
In both cases in the past, according to John Lilleyman, President of the Royal College of Pathologists
, both coroners and clinicians have been lax in gaining full consent from relatives, more often that not because they do not want to cause extra distress to the family.
