Birmingham Children's Hospital Helpline Set Up For Patients Of Myles Bradbury

Patients Treated By Cancer Specialist Can Now Access Support And Advice


Birmingham Children’s Hospital has set up a helpline for patients who were treated by Myles Bradbury between 2004 and 2008.

Earlier this week, the child cancer specialist admitted sexually abusing patients he treated at Cambridge’s Addenbrooke’s Hospital between 2009 and 2013.

Prior to his role in Cambridge Bradbury worked as a registrar and consultant at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, treating as many as 250 young patients over a four-year period. 

A West Midlands Police spokeswoman said: “We are aware of the investigation and are working with our partners at the Children’s Hospital to respond to any concerns from members of the public.”

Expert Opinion
This is a truly shocking case and we welcome the swift action of the Birmingham Children’s Hospital to set up a helpline for those affected by the case.

“Access to help and support is vital for the victims of sexual abuse and it is crucial the any children treated by Bradbury, as well as their family, are offered the support and advice they need.

“Sadly the nature of the abuse by Myles Bradbury is not a one-off and in our work we have been instructed to investigate abuse suffered by a large number of patients who were taken advantage of by individuals they trusted to provide them with medical care.”
