SUPPORT FOR PATIENTS

Claims relating to Mian Munawar Shah

The expert medical negligence team led by Christian Beadell and Francesca Paul at Patient Claim Line, is acting for a group of former patients of shoulder surgeon, Mian Munawar Shah. The group were treated at Spire Healthcare’s Spire Little Aston facility and Walsall Manor Hospital in the West Midlands, and have experienced serious medical complications following this treatment.

Mr Shah performed these surgeries for a decade between 2010 and 2020. The Walsall Healthcare Trust referred the surgeon to the Royal College of Surgeons for an independent review. Once referred, Mr Shah was suspended from practice and up to 600 former patients for further evaluation.

Mr Shah is subject to an interim order which inhibits him from executing latarjet procedures (which help stabilise the shoulder) or shoulder joint replacements without supervision. These temporary measures put in place after an interim hearing in June 2021 and currently remain in force.

It is beleived that Mr Shah has not practiced out of Spire Little Aston since 2020.

If you or a loved one have been affected following treatment from Mr. Shah, it is important to understand your rights to financial compensation and seeking justice.
