Consultant urologist 'disappointed' over dismissal

The Medical Defence Union has released a statement on behalf of consultant urologist Paul Miller who was dismissed by Surrey & Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust.

The trust has commissioned a review into the care of more than 1,000 of Mr Miller's former patients.

I am extremely disappointed that the trust has decided to dismiss me. I strongly do not believe that this is justified.

I welcome the opportunity to co-operate with any investigation into my practice.

My priority as a consultant for the last 21 years has always been to protect patients’ best interests and safety.

I cannot comment further due to my duty of patient confidentiality.
