About the investigations
In late 2018, staff at the Royal Derby Hospital reportedly raised concerns about a consultant’s care which led to an investigation into 272 former patients’ treatment at the hospital. The investigation is looking at cases between 2017 and 2018, with the consultant in question leaving the hospital in June 2018.
The Trust is looking into all women who had undergone major surgeries such as hysterectomies, prolapse repairs and ovary removals. Some women have reported being in ‘excruciating pain’, and the NHS Trust has announced that at least eight women had been “unnecessarily harmed” by the consultant.
The Trust should inform all those who may be affected by the alleged actions of the consultant as soon as possible. If you have undergone major surgery, like the ones listed above, at the Royal Derby Hospital between 2017 and 2018, you may be affected. We can assess whether there is a potential case for you on a free and no-obligation basis.

Why choose the Group Action Lawyers?
The Group Action Lawyers have years of experience in the niche area of medical group and multi-party cases. Our experience includes the infamous 2012 PIP breast implant group action where we have recovered over £1.3m in damages so far, as well as representing victims for vaginal and hernia mesh compensation claims.
We are also able to help those affected by the Ian Paterson matters, where he was convicted on 17 counts of wounding with intent, and a further three counts of unlawful wounding of 10 patients. The cases stem from unnecessary operations he is said to have carried out as far back as 1997, and he reportedly told patients their conditions were far worse than they were.
The PIP breast implant scandal involved 400,000 women across 65 different countries who were fitted with PIP Breast Implants that contained industrial-grade silicone instead of medical-grade silicone, and were more liable to rupture due to having poorer quality shells.
