Sur­geon’s ‘face ex­per­i­ments’ harmed 88

The Daily Telegraph - - News -

♦ A sur­geon who car­ried out “ex­per­i­men­tal pro­ce­dures” on pa­tients’ faces, harm­ing at least 88 in his care, has been struck off the medical reg­is­ter to “pro­tect the pub­lic”.

Max­illo­fa­cial spe­cial­ist Roger Bain­ton car­ried out dozens of un­nec­es­sary op­er­a­tions while work­ing at Royal Stoke Uni­ver­sity Hos­pi­tal. He was em­ployed de­spite be­ing found guilty in 2000 of se­ri­ous pro­fes­sional mis­con­duct fol­low­ing the death of a pa­tient at Aberdeen Royal In­fir­mary.

The Royal Stoke re­viewed his ap­point­ment and said it “had been un­der­taken in line with due process and trust pol­icy”. It said col­leagues had raised con­cerns about him “in a clear demon­stra­tion of their com­mit­ment to the high­est qual­ity of pa­tient care”.
