Chris McFarlane, the former director of nursing at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, has admitted that Jimmy Savile was given “too much freedom” to access all areas of the hospital.
She told ITV News that she saw his behaviour change over time as he became more famous, and that there was a sense that “whatever Jimmy wanted he could get” because of his fundraising activities.
But she also said she was shocked to hear the allegations of abuse and that she was sure such behaviour would not have been tolerated knowingly at Stoke Mandeville:
The estate of Jimmy Savile has been frozen in response to the mounting sexual abuse claims against the late television and radio star.
The Jim'll Fix It star frequently used his access to hospitals he raised funds for to abuse young girls, according to fresh allegations.
A former Surrey Police officer who investigated Jimmy Savile has told ITV News he wasn't told of allegations made to other police forces.
