Yew Tree report

 LYPFT thumbnail

An investigation into an allegation of two incidents involving Jimmy Savile at High Royds Hospital.

"Our sympathies and thoughts are with all the victims of Jimmy Savile. It is unacceptable that vulnerable people who are in need of care and protection should come to harm when using mental health services. One person has come forward and reported an incident of abuse by Jimmy Savile at High Royds Hospital many years ago.

Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust is the successor organisation to High Royds and I apologise unreservedly for the dreadful breach of trust and the harm done at the time. Services have changed beyond recognition since then and it is our duty to ensure that such abuse is prevented in the future."

Beverley Murphy

Chief Nurse and Director of Quality Assurance
