Leeds hospitals investigating Savile complaints

Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust says it will look into any complaints made to police about incidents at Leeds General Infirmary and St James's University Hospital:

In early December, the Trust published the terms of reference for its internal investigation into matters relating to Jimmy Savile's long-standing involvement with the Leeds Teaching Hospitals as a volunteer and fundraiser.

This will be a thorough and detailed piece of work and will be carried out in conjunction with parallel investigations by the Department of Health and other NHS trusts.

Work is now under way and we expect our report will be ready towards the end of this year.
