Patients recalled to Royal Bournemouth Hospital

Hundreds of women have been recalled to the Royal Bournemouth Hospital amid concerns over the way breast cancer consultations were carried out.

The Hospital says the consultants are unhappy with the way a junior doctor conducted his initial assessment of some of the patients.

A spokesman said the assessment potentially did not meet their usual high standards but they had no evidence of any harm to the patients seen by the junior doctor.

Around 250 women who attended the breast clinic between January 2011 and July 2012 and were told they didn't require a follow-up appointment are being invited back for a further consultation and examination.
