MP calls for full inquiry at Stoke Mandeville

Bosses at Stoke Mandeville Hospital are being urged to launch an investigation into claims Sir Jimmy Savile may have abused patients there. Reading East MP Rob Wilson has written to the chief of Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust to request a full inquiry.

The TV presenter worked at the hospital as a volunteer fundraiser and had his own private room. The trust says it would be inappropriate for them to conduct their own internal investigation at the moment but they are supporting the police fully with their enquiries.
