Michele Paduano, BBC Midlands health correspondent reports that a review by the Royal College of Surgeons has raised concerns about the work carried out by orthopaedic surgeon Mr Mian Munawar Shah at Walsall Manor Hospital.
The BBC reports that Mr Shah has been suspended by the Walsall Healthcare Trust and the hospital is writing to 600 patients who may have been affected and has set up a helpline.
The Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS) has imposed interim measures on Mr Shah’s licence stopping him from doing laterjet procedures and shoulder joint replacements without supervision.
Nick Tubb, Medical Negligence Partner at Shoosmiths Birmingham office successfully recovered compensation for Joanne Aldridge in a claim against Mr Mian Munawar Shah for negligent elbow surgery he performed at the Spire Little Aston Hospital in April 2010 which left her suffering with life changing injuries. Joanne’s story is featured in the BBC report.
Shoosmiths assisted Jo with making a complaint to Fitness to Practice department at the General Medical Council (GMC reg no 4664338) in 2016, but the GMC did not investigate. We have serious concerns that opportunities may have been missed which have impacted patient safety.
If you are one of Mr Shah’s patients and you have concerns about the treatment you received, contact us for a free and confidential discussion. You can call us on 0370 086 8688 or send us a message.
Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust has also set up a helpline for patients. You can contact them on 01922 604631 or email [email protected]. Further details about the support the trust is offering can be found here: Support for patients during review - Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust
