Doctor accused of sex offences against children hasn't worked at Addenbrooke's for 9 months

Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Trust which runs Addenbrooke's, has released a statement about Dr Myles Bradbury who is accused of sex offences against boys.

The news that Dr Myles Bradbury, formerly of Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Trust, has been charged with offences against children will be distressing for many patients, families and staff. Our main priority is the safety of our patients. As soon as concerns were raised 9 months ago, Dr Myles Bradbury was excluded from working in the trust and is no longer employed here. Since then we have worked closely with Cambridgeshire police and partners, including the NSPCC, to make sure that individuals are contacted and support is offered through this difficult time.
