Hospital apologises after patients recalled

“Although we have found no evidence of any harm, the safety of our patients is our number one priority. This is why as a precaution we are making additional contact with some patients and offering a further consultation.

The vast majority of patients who have attended the breast clinic at Bournemouth during this time remain unaffected. We do however realise that for those patients that we do recall this may lead to additional anxiety and we apologise for the distress that this may cause."

– Mr Tony Skene, Consultant Breast Surgeon
