A hospital trust exposed women with breast cancer to the risk their disease would come back despite repeated concerns about a surgeon's abilities, a damning report has found. Women who underwent mastectomies at Solihull Hospital - part of the Heart of England NHS Trust - were largely left in the dark despite years of complaints about breast surgeon Ian Paterson. Lawyer Sir Ian Kennedy, who led a review into what happened, accused managers at the trust of "preferring good news to true news".
