Spire Parkway Hospital scandal

The Spire Parkway Hospital in the West Midlands is under scrutiny again as it has had to recall 217 patients.  This is the same hospital where breast surgeon, Mr Ian Paterson, carried out ‘extensive, life-changing operations for no medically justifiable reason’.  He was jailed, initially for 15 years, but his sentence was later increased to 20 years.

The new allegations concern the care that patients received from a consultant orthopaedic surgeon, Mr Habib Rahman, following an investigation by the Royal College of Surgeons. The care is thought to have been provided to private patients and not his NHS patients. However, some of these patients may have been referred to the Spire Hospital through the NHS. It is understood that he continues to work within the NHS under ‘interim restrictions’.

Letters have been sent to patients who received shoulder manipulation surgery under general anaesthetic from Mr Rahman, asking them to make contact with the hospital to make an appointment with an independent orthopaedic surgeon to assess whether the care they received from Mr Rahman was appropriate.
