Investigation team looking to compile a 'true picture' of Savile's activities at hospitals in Leeds

The team investigating Jimmy Savile's activities at hospitals in Leeds is hoping to finish all witness interviews by the end of May. Confidential support is available for people who come forward.

We cannot disclose our findings as yet. The investigation is on-going and busy collating data and evidence to fully understand Jimmy Savile's relationship with the hospitals in Leeds.

We would urge anyone who worked with Jimmy Savile who may have since left the hospital, or anyone else who feels they may have some information, however small, which can help compile a true picture, to get in touch with us."

– Ray Galloway, lead investigator

We understand that in many cases it will not be easy to come forward, but the investigation needs your help. If you have information as a patient, visitor, current or former member of staff, relative or charity worker, we urge you to speak with us.

Please do help us if you can."

– Professor Proctor, chair of investigation team
