Saqib has recently written to the the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Matt Hancock, calling on the government to include representatives from the patient groups on the Paterson Inquiry Response Programme Board as recommended in the Paterson Inquiry by the Reverend Graham James, Bishop of Norwich.
Having met with patients who were subject to Paterson's malpractice and hearing their experiences first hand, Saqib said:
"Their own personal experiences also mean they are well placed to inform discussions and ensure that patients are properly represented.
"One of the issues is the way Mr Paterson manipulated the consent process and only those who were privy to those consent discussions, namely the representatives from the patient groups, can provide real insight to ensure that the lacunas which still exist, can be filled.
"The patient voice needs to be heard at board level to help ensure the same mistakes are not made again."
