AN elderly doc jailed for killing a mum of three botched the same treatment on another patient three months earlier. Dr Isyaka Mamman, 85, admit
AN elderly doc jailed for killing a mum of three botched the same treatment on another patient three months earlier.
Dr Isyaka Mamman, 85, admitted the manslaughter of Shahida Parveen, 48, in a bone marrow biopsy and got three years’ jail on Tuesday.
He accidentally pierced soft tissue around her heart instead of chest.
Two complaints had been made in 2015 about the medic — previously suspended for lying about his age — botching similar procedures at Royal Oldham Hospital.
Now Tony Johnson, 54, says three months before Mrs Parveen’s death in 2018, he also complained it took the medic five attempts to carry out his biopsy and left him “in a world of agony”.
Now retired taxi driver Tony has revealed he was also wrongly told it wasn’t a problem that he was on blood-thinning medication.

But when he was dropped off home, the seat of the car was covered in blood which was pouring from his back.
Talking about his treatment, Tony added: “Dr Mamman was 81 when he did my bone marrow biopsy. It should never have happened.
“It took him five attempts to get it right and I can’t even begin to explain the pain that caused.
“It left me traumatised.
“Then when the hospital driver dropped me home, he noticed I was caked in blood. It was all over the seat.
“I called the hospital immediately and they told me to go straight to A&E.
Chief officer David Jago has apologised to him for care “which did not meet our usual high standards”.
