The private Hospital at the centre of the breast surgery scandal in which a surgeon was jailed for 20 years has recalled hundreds of patients following concerns about the practices of another senior doctor. Spire Parkway Hospital in the West Midlands has recalled 217 patients who received care from Habib Rahman, consultant orthopaedic surgeon, following an investigation by the Royal College of Surgeons. Rahman is still working for the NHS under interim restrictions imposed in July, spokeswoman for University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust confirmed on Friday. Trust has not recalled any of his NHS patients. Letters have been sent to Spire Parkway Patients who had shoulder manipulation surgery under General anaesthetic, asking them to return to the hospital for appointment with an independent orthopaedic surgeon to assess whether their care was appropriate. News of the investigation into another surgeon working at Spire Healthcare came little more than a week before the findings of an independent inquiry into rogue breast surgeon Ian Paterson, who operates at Spire Healthcare Hospitals across the Midlands. Paterson was originally jailed for 15 years in 2017 after carrying out extensive, life-changing operations for no medically justifiable reason, but his sentence was later increased to 20 years. He was convicted of 17 counts of wounding with intent at Nottingham crown court, relating to nine women and one man, but it is believed his victims number in the hundreds. The court heard that in many cases, patients were left disfigured and traumatise after they were wrongly told they had cancer. A former patient of Rahman at Spire Parkway, who does not want to be name, said she was recalled by the hospital in 2019 and told she had undergone two unnecessary surgeries in the space of little over two months. Rahman performed two shoulder manipulation surgeries on her, which involved stretching and releasing flexible tissues around shoulder under general anaesthetic, in June and August 2017. Not only was I told my surgeries were unnecessary, but that type of surgery I received from Mr Rahman wasnt his specialist field, say 52-year-old woman from Solihull. I was referred to Spire through the NHS, so I while n't wasted any of my own money, there been cost to the NHS and there may be other individuals who have spent their hard-earned income believing they would receive a certain standard of care if they opted for private treatment. She add: I trust him. He was dressed smartly and was very charming. I had no reason to doubt anything he say. Spire Healthcare confirmed that Rahman's shoulder practice had been restricted in September 2018,. His practising privileges were suspended in January 2019 and removed in May 2019. During that period, we invited the Royal College of Surgeons to independently review Mr Rahmans practice, liaising closely with his employing NHS Trust, Care Quality Commission and General Medical Council on the output of that review, said a spokesman for Spire Healthcare. The Royal College said its final report will be issued in August 2019.

Spire Healthcare has recalled 217 patients following an investigation into concerns over shoulder operations carried out by Habib Rahmanat at its Parkway Hospital in Solihull, West Midlands. Rahman has been accused of carrying out unnecessary operations on a number of NHS patients at the Hospital. Spire restricted Rahman from practising in September 2018, and fully suspended him in January 2019 after carrying out an investigation into certain treatments he perform. Rahman currently practises in the NHS at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Trust where he is employ. In a statement, Spire said it asked the Royal College of Surgeons to review Rahmans practice and liaise closely with UHB, Care Quality Commission and General Medical Council to inform them of review findings and Spires ' plans to inform relevant patients. Following RCS guidance, we write to all patients identified as requiring follow-up, offering consultation with an independent surgeon to review both their care and post-operative recovery. That process is still on-going, statement say. Medical negligence law firm Thompsons Solicitors say it is acting on behalf of a client involved in a fresh controversy. Linda Millband, national practice lead for clinical negligence at Thompsons Solicitors, who led civil claims against Spire in the wake of the Paterson scandal, say: second patient recall and another rogue surgeon operating unnecessarily at Mr Patersons ' old private Hospital suggest systemic failings. The allegations come just days before the independent inquiry into disgraced surgeon Ian Paterson is due to publish its report. Paterson was found guilty of wounding with intent after carrying out unnecessary breast surgery on hundreds of patients on the NHS and at Spire Hospitals across the Midlands. As a result of the scandal, Spire established a 37m fund in September 2017 to compensate patients who brought claims regarding Paterson.
