Louis Ramone was operated on at Spire hospitals in September 2018 and was subsequently told the operation may have been unnecessary. Kashmir Uppal of Shoosmiths solicitors also comments. A Spire Healthcare spokesman said: "As part of our robust oversight and governance, we continuously review consultants' practice and occasionally contact individual patients about their care if there is a concern." The company said that as "a responsible healthcare business", there would "inevitably be reviews". "In this instance, following a complaint by one patient, we undertook a wider review of this consultant's practice and have been in contact with one further patient to follow-up their care," Spire said. "We can confirm that we have not undertaken a recall involving this consultant's patients and that we have no reason to do so at this time."
