20 women’s claims linked to one doctor

A major medical review is under way over claims more than 20 women suffered alleged “severe post-operative complications” after being treated by a leading private sector consultant.

Sources confirmed the review involves a single doctor who has worked at some of the country’s most high-profile private facilities in recent years.

The exact details of the cases cannot be published for legal reasons. However, it is understood the incidents relate to medical procedures which took place since 2009 and involve at least 20 female patients.

The review was sparked after the Irish Patients’ Association launched a public information campaign in Jun 2012 asking women who had concerns over their treatment to contact the group.

IPA chairman Stephen McMahon last night declined to comment other than to confirm a significant number of women have raised concerns about severe post-operative complications after their treatment by the same doctor at various hospitals.

The IPA has said that, depending on the outcome of the review over the coming weeks, any other women who may affected will be contacted. It has asked anyone with concerns to contact the IPA office on 01-2722555 between 9am and 5pm.
