Spire Parkway and Little Aston hospitals say they are continuing to investigate the practice of Ian Paterson. The hospitals are working in conjunction with the General Medical Council (GMC) and the Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust (HEFT).
"Supported by a team of independent consultant breast surgeons, we are reviewing the medical records of Ian Paterson’s patients who underwent specific procedures for benign (non-cancerous) breast conditions.
"We are notifying every patient whose notes have been reviewed and are offering each a face-to-face consultation about their care.
"This is a review of patients with benign breast conditions. Our priority is always patient care and we do not believe there is any immediate health risk.
"However, any patient treated by Ian Paterson who has immediate concerns or questions should call a dedicated phone line, 0800 044 3134, and arrange to speak with our professional medical staff.
