Another batch of reports published today on the scale of Jimmy Savile’s abuse at NHS hospitals over half a century add to the mass of evidence against the former BBC DJ, who died aged 84 in 2011. A total of 44 reports into Savile’s associations with hospitals have now been published.

A separate report was also published on Thursday regarding allegations of sexual abuse made against Savile’s older brother Johnny, who died in 1998, at another hospital. Some of the new findings include:


Stoke Mandeville Hospital (Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHST)

A 12-year-old girl was sexually assaulted by Savile in the TV lounge after being admitted to have her tonsils out in 1977. The presenter walked the girl to the empty room, asked her if she had a boyfriend and “swiftly raped her”.

The girl was unaware of who Savile was at the time and described him to investigators as a white-haired porter who wore a gold chain and smoked cigars. She complained to staff following the attack but was told not to say anything by the nurse for fear of her, the nurse, getting into trouble. Savile sexually assaulted the girl again later that night.

In 1985 a 23-year-old woman visited her mother-in-law at Stoke Mandeville Hospital and heard that Savile was visiting a children’s ward. As a fan of the DJ’s she decided to go and see him, holding out hand for him to shake. Savile did not let go and grabbed her breast so hard that it hurt. While holding her hand tightly Savile put his hand up her skirt inside her knickers and sexually assaulted her, all the time scanning the ward to see if anyone was looking. The woman, who has since died after giving her written statement to investigators, ran off and told a nurse. The nurse looked away and took no notice of her.

A 14-year-old boy was groped on ward in 1994 while waiting for an x-ray in a dressing gown. Savile walked over and said, 'Things can't be that bad'. The victim told investigators: “He put his hand on my leg, as he said it and then all of a sudden just moved his hand under my gown because I had a hospital gown on, I just had me dressing gown draped over me, put his hand on my genitals and squeezed them.”


Savile then said: “I bet that's cheered you up’.”

The boy said he had come forward in order to make it clear Savile had also abused male victims.

A man aged 28 was also groped while lying on a trolley waiting for an x-ray in 1988. He described Savile as having been dressed like a member of the medical staff. He told nobody about what Savile had done because he was too embarrassed.

A student nurse, aged 21, was assaulted in a linen cupboard in 1981. In a state of shock she turned around and on immediately doing so another student nurse came into the cupboard at which point he laughed and said goodbye.
