Cornwall consultant who delivered David Cameron's daughter under review

Comments (0)

A former consultant who helped deliver the Prime Minister’s baby daughter at a Cornish hospital is at the centre of a major probe over the care and treatment he provided to over 1,500 women.

An investigation was launched into Royal Cornwall Hospital consultant obstetrician Kenneth Jones, known as Rob, in light of complaints by patients and concerns being raised by a senior member of staff.

As a result, 1,574 gynaecological patients treated by the consultant over the last two-and-half years have been contacted by the hospital.

It is understood that Samantha Cameron, as an obstetrics patient, was not one of them.

But the RCH yesterday confirmed that it would be looking back over Mr Jones entire decade long tenure at the Truro based trust after their preliminary investigation revealed issues had previously been raised about the consultant who retired earlier this year.

    Looks like the hospital is putting all the blame on the consultant rather than their own failings in dealing with a consultant not up to doing his job. As well as Mr Jones not having his job whoever is responsible for consultant standards should also be sacked for letting this happen over many years and many reviews. It should not take a whistleblower or the press to sort out this kind of problem. Shame on the hospital for letting this happen to the women in Cornwall.
