Month: October 2020
A Royal Derby Hospital Gynaecologist has recently been under investigation over potential, alleged cases of medical negligence up to June 2018.
The investigation has reportedly been looking into 272 former patients so far, with several potential cases of patients being ‘unnecessarily harmed’ during major surgery being put under further review. The surgeries being looked into are for serious matters including hysterectomies, prolapse repairs and ovary removals.
NHS England, which oversees care across the country, is conducting an external review of the consultant’s surgeries to establish the total number of patients who may require further investigation. The investigation looks to have been slightly delayed due to COVID-19, but the Royal Derby Hospital and NHS Trust have advised that all women who may need further investigation should be contacted by early October 2020.
