1,200 cancer patients have been assessed over fears they may have been mistreated by a former consultant urologist, Surrey & Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust has said.
All of the bladder and prostrate cancer patients were seen by consultant urologist Paul Miller between 2006 and 2012.
A review of their care by the Royal College of Surgeons found that 27 of the patients "came to harm" as a result of the treatment they received.
A small number of others received care that "fell below the standards we would expect" but were not harmed as a consequence, a statement said.
Mr Miller was dismissed from the Trust and has been banned from treating cancer patients pending an investigation by the General Medical Council.
- Concerned East Surrey Hospital patients can call a helpline on 0808 168 7754 Monday to Friday, between 11am and 7pm.
