130 women are now suing the Royal Cornwall Hospital over claims a gynaecologist botched their operations.

Treliske admits investigating former consultant Rob Jones has cost £175,000 so far.

It involved contacting around two thousand women who were treated by the same man who helped deliver one of Samantha Cameron's children.

The hospital's Chief Executive, Lezli Boswell, said: "The work of the Independent Case Note Review was vital to fulfil our commitment to openness, transparency and candour as described in the Francis report 2013.

"Clearly there is a financial cost to this work but we owed it to the women and their families to conduct a thorough and independent review into the work of former Consultant Mr Rob Jones, and ensure they received the right treatment, support and redress.

"I want to repeat my thanks to the patients and staff who spoke out about their concerns and apologise unreservedly to all those affected.
 
"We have already implemented many of the recommendations from the independent reports published in February 2013 and we will continue to work with the women affected and the wider community to improve the services we provide."
