Hundreds of women have been recalled for breast cancer screening after a Bournemouth hospital claims a junior doctor failed to follow proper procedures.
The Royal Bournemouth Hospital has said that 272 patients have been asked to have reassessments.
These women attended a clinic between January 2011 and July 2012.
The Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust say that the case has been referred to the General Medical Council.
The Trust has said that concerns were raised over the way in which women were assessed by the junior doctor, which potentially did not meet the standards expected at the hospital. The junior doctor is no longer working for the Trust.
A consultant breast surgeon at the hospital says that although there is no evidence of harm to the patients, their safety remains the top priority.
