UK victims of disgraced breast surgeon Ian Paterson granted £37m compensation


LONDON — More on criminal doctor Ian PATERSON.

Graeme REEVES “Butcher of Bega and Baulkham Hills” type crimes are not exclusive to Australia’s backyard.  They are world-wide.  The NHS, shire health areas, Medical Council were all warned about his misconduct, to put it mildly, and, like the other infamous UK criminal doctor Harold SHIPMAN, THEY IGNORED IT.

Now record compensation will be paid to PATERSON’s victims for his crimes.

What a glaring inconsistency it shows up in Australia when it comes to compensation.  Think disgraceful “Butcher of Bega and Baulkham Hills”.

What does this say for the failure in medical regulation anywhere?  Not much.
