Private healthcare firm Spire Healthcare Group has told the BBC it has completed compensation payouts with regards of victims of rogue surgeon Ian Paterson.
Spire, a firm which runs private hospitals where Paterson held clinics, had paid around £27m into a fund to recompense victims of the disgraced breast surgeon.
"That is largely closed in terms of compensation," chief executive Justin Ash told BBC Radio Four's Today programme.
It came as Spire - the UK's second largest healthcare firm - reported a 7.9% drop in pre-tax profits to £8.2m for the six months to July, down from £8.9m during the same period last year.
Revenue fell 1.1% to £475.6m.
The company also named John Forrest, former chief operating officer of pub operator Greene King's retail operations, as its new chief operating officer.
