Myles Bradbury’s conviction
Hear a 2-minute audio clip of Lucy Scott-Moncrieff talking to Verita’s Charlie de Montfort about our report on the governance arrangements in the paediatric haematology and oncology service at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. This follows Myles Bradbury’s conviction in December 2014.
Lucy answers questions on who the report will impact the most, what the busy CEO needs to know about it and what improvements the NHS can make on the back off its publication.
Below is a snippet from the investigation and report commissioned for Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust:
“Dr Myles Bradbury was employed as a paediatric haematologist in the paediatric haematology and oncology service at Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH) NHS Foundation Trust (the trust). In November 2013, the family of a patient raised a concern about possible inappropriate behaviour by Dr Bradbury. Senior staff were alerted at once. He was immediately removed from clinical duties, then excluded from clinical duty the following day, and did not return to the trust. Following investigations by the police, Dr Bradbury was formally charged in July 2014 with 11 offences against children under his care. Following further investigation, he pleaded guilty in September 2014 to 25 sexual offences against 18 children who had been his patients, as well as to charges of voyeurism and possession of indecent images. He was sentenced to a total of 22 years’ imprisonment, with the judge emphasising the seriousness of the breach of trust that these offences displayed.”
