A coroner has criticised a senior doctor and NHS Trust over the deaths of 10 cancer patients.
Consultant Urologist, Paul Miller, was sacked by East Surrey Hospital in Redhill in 2014, following concerns over the treatment given to the patients. The inquest, which concluded in Crawley on Friday, found the patients had all died from natural causes but there had been “missed opportunities” and “sub-optimal care”. The patients had all been treated by Mr Miller, and died between 2006 and 2015.
Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust‘s medical director, apologised to the families involved and said the culture of its organisation had since been transformed with the CQC rating it as outstanding earlier this year.
