Concerns raised at Royal Cornwall

8th March 2013

The Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust has been accused of a failure to respond properly to concerns raised by staff after it allowed a potentially-unsafe doctor to continue to operate for more than a decade.

Concerns about consultant Robert Jones were raised on three separate occasions by a medical colleague in the trust’s obstetrics and gynaecology department from 1997 onwards, but it was not until October 2011 that his practice was limited. An independent review commissioned by the trust found the response to concerns raised had been “less than adequate”.
