Council Says Work Is Only A Precaution
Independent Investigation At Addenbrooke's Cancer Unit
An independent investigation is going to take place at Cambridge's Addenbrookes Hospital - where a paedophile doctor worked as a children's cancer specialist.
41 year old Myles Bradbury, was jailed for 22 years in December 2014, after admitting abusing 18 victims at there.
CUH Chief Executive Dr Keith McNeil has written a letter to parents/ guardians of children affected by Myles Bradbury, telling them about the independent investigation.
The independent investigation will look into the internal processes (governance) of the paediatric oncology unit where he worked.
The purpose of this independent investigation is to establish how Dr Bradbury was able to carry out his activities, how his offending behaviour went undetected and what lessons there are to be learnt for this service, the Trust and the wider NHS.
The letter reads, "I am writing to make you aware of this investigation, and invite you to contribute. I should emphasise that the independent investigation, which is being undertaken by a company called Verita, is looking at our internal governance in the hospital and not at the clinical care of individual patients. For example, Verita would like to hear from any patients, their family or carers who may have mentioned a concern about Dr Bradbury to a member of staff, (or were dissuaded from doing so) at any point during their treatment here.
"If you have any other concerns you would like to discuss about this case, including counselling support, then do please contact me directly."
