A children's doctor who has worked at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge has appeared before Cambridge Magistrates court accused of sexual offences against boys aged as young as eleven.
41-year old Dr Myles Bradbury from Herringswell in Suffolk, a paediatric haematologist, faces four counts of sexual assault and four counts of engaging in, or inciting a boy to engage in, sexual activity.
It's believed that Dr Bradbury has not worked at Addenbrooke's Hospital for six months.
The NHS Trust which runs the hospital has set up a helpline for any patient or staff with any concerns. The number is 0800 389 8625.
Judges and lawyers involved the case of convicted paedophile Myles Bradbury say his new shorter sentence will better protect the public.
Lawyers acting for the families of the victims of a paedophile doctor say Addenbrooke's has admitted failing to protect their children.
Doctor Myles Bradbury has been jailed for 22 years for abuse - described by the judge as "the worst forms of sexual abuse imaginable".
