About
In this true crime documentary we follow the former surgeon Ian Paterson who was convicted of intentionally wounding his patients through operations they did not need.

The unnecessary operations were performed on over 1,000 NHS and private patients. Former patients, colleagues and medical professionals all come together to ask why (after a decade of worrying warnings) he wasn’t stopped earlier.
