It is difficult to investigate into malpractices by medical doctors. Looks at two cases that involve Arteriovenous Malformations (AVM) surgery of the brain which were carried out by surgeons at the Prince of Wales Hospital. The patients still suffer pain and worsening health after their surgeries. They talk about their maladies and the difficulties they encounter trying to obtain their own medical records from the hospital. Tim Pang Hung-cheong (Co-ordinator, Patient's Right Association) says doctors protect each other, which is why his association hires foreign experts as witnesses. He says there should be an independent complain system for such cases.
