Patients across the UK will be able to have hand transplants on the NHS, health officials have said. Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust will begin assessing suitable adult candidates and performing the "highly complex procedure" from April. Hand transplants offer patients the only method of reconstruction that looks and functions like a normal hand. If transplanted successfully, a new hand will be able to sense its surroundings and heal itself when hurt.
