Senior managers at a hospital trust did not respond effectively to concerns over a surgeon carrying out unnecessary or incomplete breast cancer operations, a report has found.
An independent report by lawyer Sir Ian Kennedy found concerns about Ian Paterson dated back to 2003.
He allegedly carried out "cleavage sparing" mastectomies while at the Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust.
Dominic Hughes reports.
