Royal Bournemouth Hospital breast clinic recall0
The Royal Bournemouth Hospital is inviting some patients who attended the breast clinic at the hospital between January 2011 and July 2012, and didn’t require follow up, for a further consultation and examination.
This is because the consultants who run the breast clinic have recently raised concerns regarding a junior doctor, who is no longer working in the Trust, and the way in which an initial assessment of some patients may have been carried out.
“We have no evidence of any harm to the patients seen by this junior doctor. However, as a precaution, we are bringing some patients back for an assessment by a consultant. At this stage we have invited those patients who were only seen by this junior doctor”, said the Foundation Trust. www.rbch.nhs.uk
