An investigation has been ordered into the work of a gynaecologist amid "concerns" about his performance. Eftis Paraskevaides, 44, has agreed to stop working while a review of his work is carried out.

The review was ordered after colleagues at Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Huntingdon, Cambridge, raised concerns over the consultant's work. Women who had been treated by Mr Paraskevaides have already begun to ring a helpline set up after hospital bosses announced the inquiry.

A statement from the hospital said: "Concerns have been expressed... about matters of clinical performance. Mr Paraskevaides is cooperating fully with the review and shares the Trust's view that he should stop operating until it is concluded. We have no reason to believe that any individual patient has cause to worry."
