'Toxic' working atmosphere linked to patient deaths

One of London's biggest hospitals has suspended complex heart operations after a report revealed that a toxic row between surgeons contributed to a higher death rate in the department.

St George's in Tooting, is transferring some of its cases to other hospitals, while improvements are made. It follows an investigation that has linked the rise in deaths on the operating table, to in-fighting among staff.

The Evening Standard's Ross Lydall has been following the story.
