Jimmy Savile investigations: joint statement from Monitor and its national partners
The joint statement has been signed by Monitor, NHS England, the NHS Trust Development Authority and the Care Quality Commission.
he abusive behaviour of Jimmy Savile on NHS premises described in recent reports is truly awful. Our sympathy is with all the victims and we acknowledge their bravery in coming forward to talk to the investigations.
Patients and the public have a right to expect that whenever they are under the care of the NHS they are safe and protected. Whilst there has been much progress in safeguarding and safety in the NHS, and although Kate Lampard’s report into the wider lessons that must be learned is not expected until later this year, all organisations must ensure they check the recommendations of these reports against current practice and take any necessary action.
Patients and the public have a right to expect a culture that is safe, open and responds to their concerns. We urge all NHS organisations to ensure that support is available to all who have suffered, and our feelings are with the victims today.
