Who is Dr Isyaka Mamman?

An elderly NHS doctor has been charged with manslaughter after the death of a 48-year-old patient in a hospital.

Dr. Isyaka Mamman, now 78, is accused of performing a routine medical procedure that resulted in the death of Shahida Varven in 2018.

The 48-year-old patient collapsed

The 48-year-old patient collapsed while delivering a sample of her bone marrow at the Royal Oldham Hospital in Greater Manchester, a court she previously heard. She died shortly after the procedure began.

It is alleged that Mamman, a hematologist, pierced soft tissue around Ms. Varven’s heart with a hypodermic needle, and not the sternum as he should have done.
