A long awaited report into Jimmy Savile’s dealings with Stoke Mandeville hospital will be revealed this week.

Bucks Healthcare’s report was due last year, when other trusts and organisations investigated their dealings with the prolific paedophile.

But following a delay in publication, the findings will be revealed at a Westminster press conference 
tomorrow (Thursday).

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt will make a statement at the event, as well as Hattie Llewelyn-Davies and Dr Tina Kenny of Bucks Healthcare and Dr Androulla Johnstone, the lead investigator into Savile’s role at 
the hospital.

Jim’ll Fix It presenter Savile raised money for the National Spinal Injuries Centre at Stoke Mandeville, and volunteered as a porter at the hospital.

During that time, he made use of a flat in the grounds, and was a well-known face in the area.

After Savile’s death in 2011 hundreds of people came forward to say that he had abused them as children.

The allegations included attacks during his time visiting Stoke Mandeville and other hospitals , institutions and children’s homes.

He is now widely viewed as one of the country’s most notorious paedophiles.

On Thursday our website – www.bucksherald.co.uk – will be carrying the latest analysis from the report.
