High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Alder Hey organs
scandal involved the unauthorised removal, retention, and disposal
of human tissue, including children's organs was during 1988 to
1995. During this period organs were retained resulting in more
than 2,000 pots containing body parts from around 850 infants.
These were later uncovered at Alder Hey Children's Hospital,
Liverpool, during a public inquiry into the organ retention
scandal. Alder Hey was considered a world-class hospital until
revelations about organ stripping were brought to light during a
public inquiry in 1999. Until then the general public was unaware
of the activities of Alder Hey and other hospitals within the
National Health Service (NHS) in regards to their practices of
organ retention. The scandal led to the Human Tissue Act 2004,
which overhauled legislation regarding the handling of human
tissues in the UK and created the Human Tissue Authority.
