The trust which runs Leeds General Infirmary where Jimmy Savile carried out years of abuse says the report is "profoundly shocking".
Speaking today the Trust's Chief Executive Julian Hartley apologised to victims and pledged his commitment to acting on the report's 31 recommendations for improvement in the hospital.
The report made 31 recommendations which Mr Hartley said the Trust were dealing with:
We have much improved security in and around our patient areas including locks on wards, card access systems and a large network of CCTV cameras in place and we encourage staff to actively challenge unusual activity and visits.We promote a culture of openness and patient safety and have strengthened our arrangements to encourage staff at all levels of the organisation to speak out and raise concerns, however small they may seem at the time. Myself and the senior team spend much of our time on wards and in departments across all our hospitals including the Leeds General Infirmary, speaking to patients, staff and visitors.VIPs and celebrities do not have open access in and around the hospitals and instead are registered at every visit and accompanied at all times.We have significantly strengthened our internal controls to minimise risks to patient safety including much improved arrangements to protect adults and children in our care, enhanced employment checks for frontline staff and volunteers and a more robust approach to how we manage risk.
The Department of Health described Savile's years of abuse as "depraved activity" and that checks to prevent him taking on a managerial role at Broadmoor Hospital in 1988 were "wholly inadequate".
