The Independent Inquiry has been set up following the conviction of surgeon Ian Paterson. It will review the circumstances surrounding Ian Paterson’s malpractice that have affected so many patients, as a case study, and consider other past and current practices. The Inquiry aims to learn lessons from these and to make recommendations to improve the safety and quality of care provided nationally to all patients, in the independent sector and in the NHS.
