In 2020 the court rules were changed to require that all residential tenants must be given 14 days’ notice of an eviction. What happens though if the eviction is cancelled on the day?
The surgeon performed operations at both Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust and Spire Hospital, including a number of ‘cleavage sparing’ mastectomies on women who thought they were undergoing a full mastectomy. This involves leaving some breast tissue, supposedly for cosmetic reasons or to aid reconstructive surgery.
His actions were queried by colleagues and Mr Paterson was ordered by the Trust to stop carrying out the operations in this manner in June 2007. A subsequent investigation demonstrated Mr Paterson had been acting outside national guidelines. He was referred to the GMC and has been suspended. He is expected to attend a “fitness to practice” hearing next year. The GMC have also referred the matter to the police and West Midlands Police have confirmed they are carrying out investigations.
Other types of surgery undertaken by him for breast cancer have also been found to be substandard and have led to claims for compensation being started and some already having resulted in awards of compensation for the physical and psychological trauma the patients have been put through.
Scores of women have now been recalled to see an alternative breast surgeon to review the procedure done by Mr Paterson. The Trust had hoped that this recall would be finished by March 2012. Money has already been set aside by the Trust to deal with claims for compensation made by injured patients.
Anthony Collins Solicitors have already been successful in obtaining compensation for some of these patients and are instructed in a number of other claims as well. Claims have been undertaken either with the benefit of legal aid or by way of conditional fee agreements (often called “no win no fee agreements”).
