Addenbrooke’s Hospital must be held accountable abuse of young boys at hands of Myles Bradbury

Myles Bradbury

A SOLICITOR representing the victims of paedophile doctor Myles Bradbury says the hospital which failed to prevent him abusing gravely ill young boys must now be held accountable and required to explain how the abuse was allowed to happen over several years.

Myles Bradbury, 41, exploited his job as a respected paediatrician to target boys aged 10 to 16, all of whom had cancer or blood disorders, often abusing them when in one-to-one sessions where no adult was present.

He was able to carry out his crimes, against 18 boys over a four-and-a-half year period, with the abuse only coming to light when a grandmother called the hospital to raise her concerns over examinations being carried out with no other family members present.

Bradbury had told families he would simply be taking to their children, under the pretence that it could help them to open up and raise any concerns which they may not mention with relatives in the room.

However, he used that time alone to abuse boys, ordering many to arouse themselves in front of him so that he could measure ‘pubertal development’, Cambridge Crown Court heard.
Renu Daly, a specialist based at Neil Hudgell Solicitors’ London office, is representing a number of families following Bradbury’s jailing for 22 years this week.

She said: “This abuse, over a number of years, took place during the course of Bradbury’s employment at Addenbrooke’s Hospital as a paediatrician.

“The families of the children we are representing feel the hospital should be held accountable, and vicariously liable for these grotesque sexual assaults, which were carried out at a time when he was required to provide clinical care for their children.”

Miss Daly said clients would be supported in coping with both physical and psychological damage suffered from their time as patients at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, with any possible damages covering therapy treatment.

“Claims will be made to compensate them fully for their suffering at Bradbury’s hands, and to cover the counselling needed to help them live with, and hopefully overcome, any psychological damage they have suffered, which could of course be long lasting,” she added.

“These are challenging times for families. Their worst times.  They want to be listened to, understood, and cared for.

“They have already been badly let down already, and we know the legal profession must support them, and ultimately hold those responsible to account.”
