NHS England report on Tinkers Lane Surgery, Royal Wootton Bassett

NHS England has today published the following report into the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults at Tinkers Lane Surgery, Royal Wootton Bassett.  This is in relation to abhorrent crimes committed by former GP Davinderjit Bains, who subsequently received a twelve year custodial sentence in May 2013 for committing 39 serious crimes against 32 females. 
NHS England has consulted a number of those affected and their legal representative and taken all necessary steps to reduce, as far as possible, the risk of this type of incident happening again.  NHS England has also worked with the GPs and practice team from Tinkers Lane Surgery, reviewing processes and policies, and made changes to any areas that fell short of best practice, with particular regard to chaperone policies.  This work continues with the practice to monitor and ensure that all changes are sustained and services delivered are of the highest standard.

    Being one of the very unfortunate people that we impacted by this please see my comments below.

    There is one clear issue with the report. They have stated on many occasions within the report that it is targeted to help children or vulnerable adults! This has made me very upset that we are being classed as vulnerable adults. We were normal people going to our Dr’s for help – can you ask them does everyone who goes to their Dr become vulnerable?
