5 former patients of Desmond D’Mello Diagnosed with Hepatitis C

NHS England have confirmed in their press release of this week that five patients they have tested have been diagnosed with Hepatitis C.

This news comes as no surprise to us as we are already representing former patients of disgraced Nottinghamshire dentist Desmond D’Mello who have contracted the disease. The news is a worrying blow to the thousands of people who have been treated at the Daybrook Dental Surgery in Arnold for decades.

We are actively investigating several cases of former patients who have been diagnosed with Hepatitis C. Our specialist Daybrook Dental Negligence Team continues to lead the way in the fight for justice for the thousands of former patients who have been affected by D’Mello’s blatant disregard for infection control procedures.

The press release confirms that just 4,562 patients have been for testing despite the figures of former patients being estimated to be in the region of 22,000. Thankfully no cases of HIV or Hepatitis B have been found but five cases of Hepatitis C have been identified.

According to several sources, it is our team who are still representing the majority of former patients in the legal action for what has happened. We’re actively investigating several Hepatitis C cases.

In the press release, Dr Doug Black, the Medical Director for NHS England in Nottinghamshire, has said:

“Of the 4,526 patients seen and tested at the temporary clinic at Highcroft Medical Centre in Arnold, five patients were newly diagnosed with hepatitis C and there were no newly – diagnosed cases of hepatitis B or HIV”
