Disgraced breast surgeon Ian Paterson removed from medical register

Solihull Editorial 25th Jul, 2017   0

DISGRACED convicted breast surgeon Ian Paterson has been struck off the medical register.

The decision was made today (Tuesday) at a Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MTPS) hearing in Manchester.

Sharon Banga, a member of the Access Legal medical negligence team who, alongside Kashmir Uppal, has pursued justice for Paterson’s NHS and private patients since 2010, attended the tribunal.

The pair said: “The crimes which Ian Paterson committed were deeply shocking and completely betrayed his patient’s trust.




“Erasure from the medical register, meaning he can never again work in any medical capacity in the UK, was the right outcome.

“Together with the referral of his prison sentence under the Unduly Lenient Sentence scheme to the Court of Appeal, this should act as a powerful deterrent against any similar potential rogue doctors and will help to improve patient safety and public confidence in the medical profession.”
