Jimmy Savile Abuse Across NHS Detailed in Investigation Report

THE GUARDIAN – The minister in charge when Jimmy Savile was appointed to work at Broadmoor psychiatric hospital said she was “shocked, surprised, startled, disgusted”, as details of his catalogue of abuse within the NHS was exposed.

Edwina Currie said: “I wish we had never seen hide nor hair from him”, 26 years after she rubber-stamped his appointment by a civil servant to a taskforce aimed at improving the high security hospital’s governance.

Her remarks came on the day that NHS investigations confirmed that Savile – already exposed for abusing children when he worked at the BBC – was an “opportunistic sexual predator” at a string of hospitals around the country.
