“Both we, and our clients, are naturally interested in the outcome of Monday’s (24 July) MPTS hearing into Mr Paterson. We fully expect that he will be struck from the register in response to the significant body of negligent medical practice over the course of almost a decade. We trust that the MPTS will take the appropriate action and in doing so, bring an end to the professional misconduct procedure so that Mr Paterson’s ex-patients can at least know that he will be prohibited from harming patients in future.”
