'Almost a billion people have a medical device in their body. They keep us moving and they keep our hearts beating, but not all medical devices are properly tested before they are put inside us. Reporter Deborah Cohen investigates an industry where some patients are treated like human guinea pigs and then abandoned when things go wrong.'

This acclaimed BBC documentary is led by HIFA member Deborah Cohen. Note: 'Due to rights agreements, you need to be in the UK to stream and download programmes or watch BBC TV channels.']
