NEW allegations of abuse by disgraced TV and radio presenter Jimmy Savile have been made in relation to 12 NHS Trusts.
The NHS Legacy Unit, which oversees NHS investigations into alleged abuse by Savile on health premises, confirmed that it has passed on information from victims and the Metropolitan Police to the trusts.
Lawyer Tracey Storey, who is representing a number of Savile’s victims, said: “It is incredibly worrying to see more concerns related to Savile emerge and it is vital that authorities work quickly to fully investigate these new allegations.
“The extent of the abuse highlighted by previous and ongoing investigations has been truly horrifying, and the revelation of further allegations raises even more concerns regarding his activities and how he was able to offend over a number of years.”
Findings in the first round of NHS investigation reports — published in June — said Savile committed ‘‘truly awful’’ abuse against patients at hospitals across the country and even boasted about having sex with corpses.
