Dr Myles Bradbury faces four counts of sexual assault and four counts of engaging in, or inciting a boy to engage in, sexual activity.

The 41-year-old paediatric haematologist at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, appeared at Cambridge Magistrates’ Court.

The alleged offences date back to 2011 and relate to boys aged between 11 and 15.

He also faces two charges of making indecent images of a child and one count of voyeurism, in which it is alleged he secretly filmed somebody engaging in a sex act.

Wearing a dark blue suit, white shirt and tie, Bradbury, of Herringswell, spoke only to confirm his name, date of birth and address.

He did not indicate any likely plea and was bailed to appear before Cambridge Crown Court on July 11.

He left the court building via a rear entrance to avoid camera crews waiting outside.

Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Trust, which runs Addenbrooke’s Hospital, has set up a helpline to be used “if parents, patients or former patients have any concerns”.

The trust added it was working closely with the NSPCC.

The helpline, on 0800 389 8625, can be reached between 8am and 9pm on weekdays and 9am to 5pm at weekends.
