Renu represented the largest number of families in cases against Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridgeshire, where specialist children’s doctor Myles Bradbury admitted abusing 18 boys in his care, resulting in him receiving a 22-year prison sentence.
She said: “It is particularly important for us to be aware of how difficult it can be for people to turn to us for help and support.
“We have had people turn to us after decades of keeping the abuse they suffered to themselves, not even feeling able to tell their closest family members for many years. We have always and continue to honour their privacy.
“Abusers can often be family members, or those in respected professions and positions of trust, such as teachers, the police or medical staff, and on occasions, those who feel alone can find there were many others like them who suffered.
“I was deeply touched to be trusted by those who suffered so much when supporting children and families relating to the abuse carried out by Dr Myles Bradbury.
“To have been instructed by parents who allowed me to assist with the most precious people in their lives was indeed a privilege and it has been humbling to work with the most exceptional children who have shown unbelievable strength, courage and determination to come forward to break the silence about what they went through.
“Many people often feel ashamed and embarrassed by what has happened to them, and it is often only when they do speak out that they find they are not alone, often bringing issues of huge public interest and importance under scrutiny. This is testimony to their bravery.”
