    An NHS surgeon has admitted to botching patients’ surgeries which left them with life-changing injuries, a tribunal has heard. Dr Camillo Valero, who works at Norfolk and Norwich NHS trust and is facing allegations over his conduct towards three patients, has been admitted to severing a patient’s gallbladder during an operation. Dr Valero is facing a medical practitioner’s tribunal where he already admitted to failures during two patients’ procedures. Allegations against him include a failure to obtain a “critical view of safety” for his patients during surgeries. He is als

    John Watkinson was one of the country's top ear, nose and throat surgeons. But Mr Watkinson's life and career were turned upside down when he was accused of shortening the lives of three patients, suspended and investigated. General Medical Council investigators would eventually close his case, taking no further action, and Mr Watkinson would receive an apology for what he had experienced from his employer University Hospitals Birmingham (UHB) NHS Trust. But that was six years after he was first suspended - six years that would see him pushed to the brink. "As doctors, we'r

    A new survey of more than 1,000 surgeons across the USA reiterates concerns that impending cuts to surgical care, set to take effect on 1 January 1 2023, will lead to a decrease in Medicare patient intake, increased delays to care, and longer wait times for patients in surgical practices. These survey results support the efforts of the over one million physician and non-physician healthcare providers joining together in urging congressional leadership to stop the full cut to Medicare payments through a Week of Action. "Our survey results confirm that the impending cuts to Medicare payment

    A consultant orthopaedic surgeon who carried out double the average number of knee and hip operations over a three year-period is facing a tribunal over alleged misconduct and more than 100 legal cases lodged by former patients, HSJ has been told. Jeremy Parker, who performed hundreds of operations at Colchester Hospital and the private Oaks Hospital until his suspension in 2019, is currently appearing before a misconduct hearing. The tribunal is investigating allegations that between August 2015 and November 2018, Mr Parker failed to provide good clinical care to six patients. It ha

    A consultant surgeon refused to attend hospital to carry out urgent surgery at a trust which later had upper gastrointestinal surgery suspended after an unannounced Care Quality Commission visit. The CQC report into upper GI surgery at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton – based on an inspection in August – said incident reports revealed occasions when upper GI surgeons could not be contacted or refused to come into hospital to treat patients. In one case, a consultant would not come in to carry out urgent surgery, it added. Low numbers of surgeons meant the on-call rota for

    A damning report has highlighted failures in how NHS Tayside oversaw a surgeon who harmed patients for years. Prof Eljamel, the former head of neurosurgery at NHS Tayside in Dundee, harmed dozens of patients before he was suspended in 2013. The internal Scottish government report into Prof Sam Eljamel, which has been leaked to the BBC, said the health board repeatedly let patients down. It outlined failures in the way Prof Eljamel was supervised and the board's communication with patients. The report was commissioned last year over unanswered questions and concerns from patien

    A consultant oncologist who ignored a hospital instruction and attended patients’ cancer surgery on two days when he knew he was still testing positive for Covid-19 has been suspended from the UK medical register for three months. Andrew Gaya admitted knowingly breaking the rules but told the medical practitioners tribunal he had feared that the patients’ treatments would be postponed if he could not attend the private London Gamma Knife Centre, part of HCA Healthcare UK. The two incidents occurred in the early weeks of the pandemic, at a time of high covid death rates. “I did not ta

    Surgeons in a London hospital have performed a week’s worth of operations in a single day, pioneering a technique that could be used to help reduce the NHS backlog. The team at Guy’s and St Thomas’ hospital performed eight robot assisted radical prostatectomy operations in under ten hours, the highest number performed in a single day in the UK in one hospital. High Intensity Theatre lists (HIT) focus on one procedure at a time and seek to minimise the turnaround time between operations. Using two theatres, the surgeon can go between cases without having to wait for a patient to come

    Up to 600 patients are to be recalled by a hospital after concerns were raised about shoulder operations. Some patients have lost the use of their arm after surgery by Mian Munawar Shah at Walsall Manor Hospital. Angela Glover had two operations by Mr Shah - the first, it later emerged after a review, was unnecessary and a screw had been placed inappropriately. Her partner Simon Roberts said she was in "constant pain" and was unable to raise her arm or grip things in her right hand. It has affected her mental health to the point she had to be sectioned after a suicide attempt, Mr Rob

    Watchdogs have been asked to investigate a Scottish government overhaul of NHS waiting times information after surgeons said that some of the figures were “grossly misleading”. A complaint has been made to the Office for Statistics Regulation, which ensures that important public data is trustworthy, about a new guide for patients on the NHS Inform website. Concerns have also been raised with Audit Scotland, which monitors public spending and NHS performance. Last month Humza Yousaf, Scottish health secretary, unveiled the platform claiming that it would reassure patients about waitin

    A major acute site has issued a ‘full capacity’ alert to staff, just days before the services are due to move into a replacement hospital with fewer beds. In an email seen by HSJ, medical leaders at the Royal Liverpool Hospital alerted staff to extreme pressures on the site, with ambulances being held outside and “no space” in resuscitation areas. The RLH currently has around 685 beds, but at the end of this month the services are due to start transferring to the long-awaited new Royal Liverpool, on an adjacent site. The new hospital has 640 beds, and several frontline staff hav

    There was a fair bit of press coverage last week about an employment tribunal case against the Care Quality Commission – in which the regulator was found to have sacked an inspector for making a series of whistleblowing disclosures. However, many of the key details were either skirted over, or missed altogether, in the coverage. The disclosures made by Shyam Kumar related not just to his role as a special adviser for the CQC, but also to his full-time employer, University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay FT, and to understand the case fully, they need to be separated out. The importan

    The HIT lists - which have been designed by Dr Imran Ahmad, consultant anaesthetist and deputy clinical director for Theatres, Anaesthetics, & Peri-operative medicine at Guy's and St Thomas', to eliminate 'turnaround time' - were inspired by Formula 1 motor-racing pitstop techniques, to achieve maximum efficiency and safety, by boosting the surgeon’s operating time (the most expensive and most scarce resource) from the 40% per session of a conventional list to an unexpected 90%, and eliminating all possible patient delays on the day. Dr Ahmad - working with his colleague Dr Kariem El-

    A leading colorectal surgeon whose former employer, North Bristol NHS Trust, faces negligence claims from dozens of his ex-patients has failed in his bid to keep legal action he is taking against the trust a secret. A review by the trust found that 203 women on whom the surgeon Tony Dixon performed pelvic mesh procedures between 2007 and 2017 came to harm. The trust faces legal claims from many of them. Trust board members were told in May that the trust had notified the 203 women that “although their laparoscopic ventral mesh rectopexy operation was carried out satisfactorily, they

    Catherine O’Connor, who was born with spina bifida and used a wheelchair all her life, was looking forward to the surgery to fix her twisted spine. Tragically, after a catastrophic loss of blood, she died on the operating table at Salford Royal Hospital in Manchester. She died in February 2007 but only now has an NHS-commissioned report concluded the “unacceptable and unjustifiable” actions of her surgeon, John Bradley Williamson, “directly contributed” to her death. Williamson pressed on with the surgery despite being explicitly told he needed a second consultant surgeon. Her c

    The Quality Improvement Programme (QIP) for Surgical Site Infections (SSIs) has been developed to enable healthcare teams and hospitals to carry out their own quality improvement projects to prevent SSIs. The QIP was developed as an output of an advisory board convened by Mölnlycke, which focused on developing a resource to aid healthcare professionals to deliver successful infection prevention programmes in their organisations. This meeting was attended by representatives from the surgical community, infection prevention leads in the NHS, and patient safety advocates. The QIP showcases best p

    Contrary to existing work, this study distinguishes error from complication, includes a measure of event severity and explores the impact of adverse events across a range of outcomes. The extent to which surgeons feel negative following adverse events is striking: nearly half of participants reported becoming more anxious, 40% sleeping worse, a third struggling to cope with anger or irritability, and over 10% reporting depression. The frequency of post-traumatic stress symptomatology illustrates the profound impact of adverse events. The study suggests surgeons do not feel prepared f
