A Broughty Ferry dad claims he was left blind and could not recognise his own daughter after a botched operation on his tumour by disgraced doctor Sam Eljamel.

John Blackwood, 68, languished in Dundee’s Victoria Hospital for almost four years following his horror ordeal, involving the ex-NHS Tayside surgeon, at Ninewells.

Eljamel harmed more than 100 patients during his 18-year spell in Dundee and the scandal will be the subject of a public inquiry after campaigning by his victims and The Courier.

More than 20 years after being operated on by the neurosurgeon, John is blind in his right eye and only has partial sight in his left eye.
John says: “He was a butcher.”
