Verita colleagues who conducted the independent investigation about the governance of the paediatric service in which Myles Bradbury worked – the consultant haematologist who was imprisoned for abuse at Addenbrookes – are currently speaking at a series of NHS England safeguarding events. The events are aimed at sharing the lessons from the Bradbury investigation and preparing NHS organisations for the Goddard inquiry (IICSA). We are distributing a safeguarding checklist at the meetings. It may be something you and colleagues would find helpful for assessing your organisation’s readiness for the Goddard inquiry.
Ed Marsden, Barry Morris and/or our associate Sue Berelowitz would be very happy to help you with any safeguarding concerns. Their details can be found at the back of the checklist.
