Thousands of x-rays 'unchecked'

19th November 2009

A doctor has claimed he was sacked for being a whistle-blower after finding 100,000 unprocessed x-rays in a hospital cupboard.

Dr Otto Chan, who lost his radiology job at the Royal London Hospital in 2006, told an employment tribunal the “hidden” x-rays would mean cancelled operations and missed appointments for people whose scans could not be found. However, the London NHS Trust claims Dr Chan, 52, was a troublemaker who had undermined management and had clashed with several senior colleagues at the hospital.
