Hospital Trust releases statement after former nurse convicted of raping unconscious women

“I can confirm that in November 2013 the Trust was informed by Thames Valley Police of the arrest of a male nurse, who at the time was employed at our John Radcliffe Hospital. Subsequently, Thames Valley Police have been conducting an extensive investigation and we have done everything possible to support this process. Since his arrest, the individual has not worked in any part of the Trust and is no longer an employee of ours. Our thoughts today are with the victims, whose trust was so betrayed in our Hospital and elsewhere. We have been shocked and horrified by the behaviour of the individual, who so badly let down both the patients he was entrusted to care for and his fellow colleagues, and who totally failed in his professional duties and responsibilities as a nurse. I would wish to reassure members of the public that the welfare and safety of our patients is always our first priority."

– Mark Power, Director of Workforce for Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust
