Professor Derek McMinn investigation

Following recent media coverage with allegations against a former consultant, Professor Derek McMinn, we would like to reassure patients that we will support the ongoing investigation by the GMC and BMI Healthcare.

Professor Derek McMinn was suspended in March 2019 from working at BMI Healthcare’s Edgbaston Hospital. This hospital was owned by Nuffield Health until 1 February 2008 and Professor Derek McMinn therefore worked with Nuffield Health up until this time when the hospital was sold to BMI Healthcare.

The care of our patients is our number one priority and we understand these allegations may be distressing for Prof McMinn’s former patients and their relatives. If any information concerning individuals that relates to patient harm is identified as the criminal investigation progresses, we will respond to the people concerned and provide any support they need. Please contact us 020 7935 0894 (selecting option 4) if you would like more information.
