A REVIEW of people deemed at high risk following treatment by a cancer surgeon under investigation because of concerns about deaths among his patients has been completed.
Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust say a panel of specialist doctors and clinicians set-up to examine the medical records of people treated by colorectal surgeon Sudip Sarker between July 2011 and October 2012 has completed the first stage of its work. Patients deemed high risk have had their records assessed and if necessary called back for further treatment while the panel is now looking at those in the low risk category.
A full report on the progress of the investigation is expected at the Trust’s board meeting next month.
In total 55 people contacted a helpline set-up following concerns about Mr Sarker’s practice.
He was initially allowed to carry on working for the Trust but with restrictions and supervision before being excluded.
