From BBC Northern Ireland:
A review of the work of a former locum consultant radiologist in the Northern Trust has, so far, identified discrepancies in a total of 43 cases.
The trust says six of these are at the most serious level, and could have had “immediate and significant clinical impact” on patients.
A full lookback review of 13,030 radiology images began in June.
It came after the General Medical Council raised concerns about the locum consultant radiologist’s work.https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-58329138
Who is to blame? The trust’s medical director, Seamus O’Reilly, explains what happened but is not accused of anything. Richard Pengelly, Secretary for Health, the Welsh Government, get no mention at all. Well, it’s not their fault is it?
But in Scotland:
The government need to be bolder, listen to what we’re saying, and increase the number of trainees. It is the key part of the solution.
