Dr Hope is suspended on full pay

A brain surgeon has been suspended in a row over an extra helping of soup at a hospital's canteen.

Dr Terence Hope, 57, a consultant at the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham, was sent home on full pay last Wednesday.

He is alleged to have taken an extra helping of croutons without paying for them, according to the Daily Mail.

Hospital officials confirmed he is being investigated, but would not comment further.


Senior examiner

A spokeswoman for the Queen's Medical Centre NHS Trust said: "A consultant was suspended on Wednesday following an alleged incident at the hospital which did not relate to any patient or another member of staff.

"The matter will now be discussed as soon as possible with the consultant involved. In the meantime the trust is not prepared to talk any further.

"This type of matter would normally remain confidential in order to support and protect the individual involved and it would be inappropriate to compromise that by going into any greater detail."

She said that it is not yet known when the hospital will meet Mr Hope to discuss the alleged theft.

'Something wrong'

Mr Hope, who is an expert in vascular neurosurgery and thought to earn around £80,000 a year, was appointed a consultant neurosurgeon in Aberdeen in 1981.

He moved to Nottingham in 1986.

Mr Hope was born in Newcastle upon Tyne and trained at Liverpool University, before working in Bristol and in Memphis, Tennessee.

The father of three, from Hemington, Leicestershire, is a senior examiner for the Royal College of Surgeons and secretary of the Intercollegiate Board in Neurosurgery.

Linda Towle, a former patient of Mr Hope, felt it was a ridiculous situation.

She said: "Croutons are only slices of bread chopped up.

"I know bread costs money but it seems there is something wrong here."
