Judge appointed in Ian Paterson inquiry

Solihull Editorial 30th Apr, 2023   0

A JUDGE has been nominated to continue the investigations into the deaths of patients treated by the rogue breast surgeon, Ian Paterson.

Birmingham and Solihull senior coroner Louise Hunt and area coroner Emma Brown have been tasked to identify whether there is reason to suspect that any former patients of the convicted surgeon died an unnatural death as a result of the care they received.

An independent Multi-Disciplinary Team of medical experts made up of consultant breast surgeons and consultant oncologists have been instructed to meet and review the patient records.

A consultant pathologist and consultant radiologist are also part of the investigation.

So far 27 inquests have been opened and adjourned.

The preliminary enquiries on individual cases are continuing.

Sarah Jane Downing, the founder of the support group for convicted former breast surgeon Ian Paterson’s private patients, said: “Although it is a heartbreaking to see this next development in the Paterson case it is a relief to see that the Coroner’s Service are finally engaged and giving proper attention to the huge number of Paterson unnecessary deaths.”
