Women with breast cancer were seriously harmed and were victims of "weak and indecisive leadership from senior managers" at a hospital trust in the West Midlands, a damning report has concluded.
A review into what happened at Solihull Hospital - part of the Heart of England NHS Trust - found a "tragic story" that is also a story of "secrecy and containment".
Lawyer Sir Ian Kennedy, who led the review, said breast surgeon Ian Paterson, who has been suspended by the General Medical Council, was allowed to carry on operating on women for several years despite a series of concerns raised about him by other medical staff.
Up to 400 women are thought to be suing the trust and a private firm for failing to take action over the claims.
The review found that some of the women were exposed to a risk of cancer coming back after Mr Paterson performed only partial mastectomies.
In January a task force will be set up to address the recommendations in Sir Ian Kennedy's review into unnecessary and incomplete breast cancer operations at the Heart of England Trust. The Trust says it is aiming to implement the recommendations within six months.
It says it has recalled all of Ian Paterson’s mastectomy patients and is continuing to follow-up those requiring additional review. It says this this will be for 15 years - a longer period than normal
12 experts have now been asked to conduct a wider review in to all the surgeon's patients.
The findings of a report in to failures over breast cancer operations at the Heart of England Trust have been described as “shocking” and the Trust says it has offered a full and unreserved apology to both patients and staff.
Ian Paterson, a breast surgeon who was eventually suspended by the GMC, carried out unauthorised surgical procedures without the consent of his patients, over a number of years.
The Trust Chairman, Lord Philip Hunt, said:
“We give a full and unreserved apology to all of the patients and their families, for the way they were both mistreated by Mr. Paterson whilst he was a surgeon at the hospital, and subsequently let down by the Trust’s management team at the time.
We also apologise to staff and other professionals who raised concerns about Mr. Paterson’s practices - but were not listened to by the former leadership team.
We sincerely hope that both patients and staff feel that the commissioning and publication of Sir Ian’s independent Review along with our commitment to openness, and to the full implementation of his Recommendations, provides reassurance of our determination to prevent this reoccurring.”
A review is being published in to how a breast cancer surgeon performed incomplete breast removal operations on women. The operations took place at Solihull and Good Hope Hospitals.
Ian Paterson was a consultant at Solihull hospital and practised privately throughout the West Midlands. He was suspended by the General Medical Council in 2011.
