Yesterday it emerged that another 19 hospitals have been added to the list to be investigated because of claims made against Jimmy Savile. I wonder how many of these new claims arose as a result of 'After Savile ...' the panorama episode produced the same BBC producer who produced the ill fated, never to reach our televison screens, Newsnight film about former residents at his aunt's school !
Anyway, here they are - just simmering away in the bottom 19 of the now 32 hospitals whose Trusts will be fleeced if SOME get their way !
As a result of this huge increase in demand for resources to be spent investigating these allegations, Jeremy Hunt the health Secretary says he expects the 'final reports ... to be completed by June 2014.' Not everyone is happy by the announcement of this fact, in the same Daily Mail article, Ms Dux the solicitor handling the bulk of the claims against Sir Jimmy said
Liz Dux, head of abuse at Slater and Gordon Lawyers, who represents 72 potential Savile victims, said in October: 'While the victims are encouraged by news that the NHS inquiries will be comprehensive investigations of other institutions that may have been involved, the news that the time-frame for concluding the investigation has been extended until next June will be met with dismay.
'My clients all need closure and whilst we welcome a detailed understanding of how Savile was able to operate unchecked for so many years, at the same time we need to recognise that until these reports are concluded their suffering continues.'
The longer this charade goes on the more ordinary folk will question the amount of time, money and resources being used. They are also starting to question the claims themselves, ALL OF THEM !
