Mian Munawar Shah

The expert medical negligence team led by Christian Beadell and Francesca Paul at Fletchers Solicitors, is acting on behalf of a group of former patients of shoulder surgeon, Mian Munawar Shah. They were treated at Spire Healthcare’s Spire Little Aston facility and Walsall Manor Hospital in the West Midlands, and  have experienced serious medical complications following this treatment.

Mr Shah performed surgery between 2010 and 2020 at Spire Healthcare’s Spire Little Aston facility and Walsall Manor Hospital. The Walsall Healthcare Trust referred him to the Royal College of Surgeons to carry out an independent review. Following this, he was suspended from practice and elected to recall up to 600 former patients for further evaluation.

Mr Shah has been subject to an interim order which prevents him from carrying out latarjet procedures (which help stabilise the shoulder) or shoulder joint replacements without supervision. Those temporary restrictions were made following an interim hearing in June 2021 and are still in force.

It is understood that Mr Shah has not practiced out of Spire Little Aston since 2020.

If you or a loved one have been affected by the actions of Mr. Shah, it is important to understand your rights to financial compensation and seeking justice.

What’s the process?

When you contact the team we will provide a Free Case Assessment to understand what has happened to you, listen what you would like to achieve and ensure that you have a valid case to bring. Once we have identified that you have a legitimate claim we will begin an investigation. In a group action this can be slightly different to a normal case as there will be parts which we can achieve as part of a wider group. Within this stage we will need to collect evidence, work out who is responsible and assess your injuries. When dealing with a group there may be efficiencies and hopefully you will be able to benefit from this. We will apply to the Court to let them know that we are dealing with the case. If needed we will get a Group Litigation Order. We will then negotiate with the defendants in order for us to try and reach a favourable settlement. Once we have a decision or an agreement of settlement we will arrange for the compensation to be paid to you.
