Hospital Trust must "strengthen" procedures for celeb visits

A report for University Hospital's Leicester NHS Trust has recommended that hospitals strengthen procedures in relation to visiting VIPs and celebrities, in light of the Jimmy Savile case.

The report into the Roecliffe Manor children's home in Woodhouse Eaves found that children there were being abused during the 1950s and 1960s but there was not strong enough evidence placing Jimmy Savile there.

The lead investigator said Leicester's hospitals need to have a strong procedure in place "particularly in relation to a VIP who may arrive unexpectedly and unplanned on to the the Trust's premises."
