It sickens me that a man using his celebrity status was allowed to cover-up his prolific paedophile abuse. Hospital staff dismissed allegations as they thought he was an ‘asset’ for the hospital. Shame on them all. Joanna
Jimmy Savile was allowed unfettered access to the NHS where he raped and sexually assaulted patients in 41 hospitals during a 24 year reign of abuse, a bombshell report has revealed this morning. The paedophile DJ attacked 60 NHS patients at Stoke Mandeville Hospital alone, where he was given his own private bedroom and 24 hour access to all wards. It is also likely that he had sex with bodies in the Buckinghamshire hospital’s mortuary and is believed to have stolen a glass eye from one body and had it made into a medallion he wore round his neck.
One member of staff who was complained about Savile’s abuse was ‘severely reprimanded’ by her bosses and the complaint was dropped, the report said. The disgraced celebrity, who is now thought to be Britain’s most prolific paedophile abuser, assaulted victims as young as eight years old who were being cared for by the NHS. But despite at least 10 complaints being made nothing was done by senior managers to stop him.
