The Broadmoor Hospital report into Jimmy Savile found there were clear failings in the way access to the hospital was controlled during the time he was connected to the institution.
- A closed and introspective institutional culture, encouraging a custodial approach to 'inmates' and permitting instances or harsh treatment
- A 'notable absence of written polices and procedures' over most of the time Savile was involved with the hospital
- Savile had keys allowing him unrestricted access to ward areas within the security perimeter
- Sexual relationships between staff and patients were tolerated in what was a "clear, repeated failure of safeguarding standards".
