Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge has paid out compensation of more than £600,000 after the conviction of Suffolk-based consultant paediatrician Dr Myles Bradbury for child sex offences, it has emerged.
Myles Bradbury, who lived at Herringswell near Bury St Edmunds, was jailed for 22 years after carrying out medical examinations on boys “purely for his own sexual gratification” while working at Addenbrooke’s Hospital.
The paediatric consultant haematologist filmed some of his victims – aged between 10 and 16 – using a spy pen and abused others behind a curtain while their parents were in the room.
According to a freedom of information request published by the BBC, Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Trust has paid out £611,750 in compensation to victims and their families.
The BBC said the figures relate to 15 cases out of the 31 claims the trust received.
