West Midlands Police have launched an investigation into a surgeon who allegedly carried out botched or unnecessary breast cancer operations at three hospitals in the West Midlands. It follows a referral from the General Medical Council, which has already suspended Ian Paterson.
Yesterday Central Tonight reported that hundreds of women who claim they had breast surgery they did not need, are calling for him to be struck off. The operations were carried out between 1994 and May last year both on the NHS and privately.
