Independent review for Morecambe Bay hospitals

An independent review will be carried out into the urology service across Morecambe Bay, after a whistleblower consultant raised concerns that some surgeons were repeatedly making serious mistakes.

The University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay has been criticised by the area's MPs who are worried it had not learned the lessons of the Kirkup Review of its maternity failings in Barrow that led to the deaths of 11 babies and a mother.

Consultant urologist Peter Duffy worked at the University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust (UHMBT). Last year he won an industrial tribunal for unfair dismissal after he made a series of internal complaints.

His new book has further fueled concerns and MPs around the Morecambe Bay area, as well as the hospital trust itself, have called for an independent review.

UHMBT chief executive Aaron Cummins wants this to provide "reassurance" that the service is safe and to ensure the management response was "appropriate and correct".
