Ian Paterson is serving a 20-year sentence for wounding patients

An independent inquiry is to be held into the malpractice of breast surgeon Ian Paterson, who carried out hundreds of botched operations.

It will aim to learn lessons from the case and improve care, the Department of Health said.

Paterson was found guilty of 17 counts of wounding with intent in April after a trial at Nottingham Crown Court. He had his initial 15-year jail term increased to 20 years in August.

The inquiry will begin in January.
