Mr Rod Irvine, consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist at South London Healthcare NHS Trust: latest info for patients

By Simon Wilson, senior solicitor and medical negligence at Neil Hudgell Solicitors.

I have just been informed of this news release from the South London Healthcare NHS Trust regarding patients of Mr Rod Irvine, consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist.

The release, available here http://www.slh.nhs.uk/?section=news&article=208 advises patients of Mr Irvine, who may have concerns about their treatment, to call an information line: 0800 44 5272.

In addition, the South London Healthcare NHS Trust is also sending letters to around 2000 women who have had operations or other planned theatre procedures undertaken by Mr Irvine.  Many of the procedures took place at Queen Mary’s Hospital, Sidcup as well as Bromley’s Princess Royal Hospital, the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Woolwich and a number of private clinics.

To summarise, the article also explains that: “Concerns about Mr Irvine’s clinical practice were initially raised in August 2012 through the Trust’s routine reporting process. The Trust then discussed the matter with the National Clinical Assessment Service (NCAS), restricted the type of operations that Mr Irvine was allowed to undertake and began a formal investigation.

“As the formal investigation progressed it became clear (in November 2012) that concerns were such that Mr Irvine should be excluded from the trust and should not be allowed to conduct any further clinical work.”

The Trust then decided to review the clinical notes of a larger sample of patients, 255 in total, and has now decided to review the clinical notes of all those women who were treated in theatre by Mr Irvine since he joined the trust in 2002.

As a legal professional with considerable expertise of investigations into the practice of clinicians I know how worried many patients and their families can become whilst they try to find out what’s happening.

Of course, it’s always advisable to find out as much information as possible from the Trust concerned about their investigations and the processes they are using to try to understand if and what mistakes have been made.   In the case of Mr Irvine, the information line set up should be a good source of information.  However, many patients don’t know where to start or are simply so worried that they often contact me simply to establish if they are in the category of those who may have been affected by negligence.  Further down the line, it becomes apparent if these patients require further legal advice and may have a case to claim for compensation.

If you’d like any more information about the legal and medical negligence services offered to NHS patients by Neil Hudgell Solicitors, please give me a call 0800 321 3322 or write to me via email sw@hudgellsolicitors.co.uk
