There are calls for a public inquiry after 70 women treated by a former Cornish gynaecologist were called for fresh checks.

It comes amid a probe into the care and treatment given by Dr Rob Jones, the man who helped deliver the Prime Minister's youngest baby, Florence, at Treliske.

Medical law experts are writing to the Duchy's MPs demanding the investigation.

In a statement, Lezli Boswell, Chief Executive of Royal Cornwall Hospital Trust, said: "As Chief Executive, I am very clear that I will not tolerate poor clinical pratice at RCHT and I am deeply sorry for any anxiety, pain or distress caused to our patients.

"We will publish the Independent Organisational Learning Review report and the findings of the Independent Case Note Review in February 2013."

But Julie Lewis, medical lawyer at Irwin Mitchell said findings should be revealed to patients immediately:

"These women have been through more than enough and for them to now have to wait even longer to discover why they were potentially not given treatment they deserve is appalling. Each patient has a right to know how and why there were any potential failings in their care."
