RCHT's Medical Director response to the report

A new report has revealed that a consultant was able to continue to work despite repeated complaints about him, because of a catalogue of missed opportunities.

Rob Jones worked at The Royal Cornwall Hospital for ten years and was investigated eight times. More than fifty women have suffered ongoing health problems apparently because of his surgery. He's now resigned.

The report has only examined the last two years. Dr Paul Upton, Medical Director at RCHT, says they are 'keeping an open mind' about whether they need to investigate the other eight years of Rob Jones' time at the hospital.
