We had a fascinating presentation from Richard Lingham at our meeting in November. Richard has had an extensive career in health and social care including being a member of the Mental Health Tribunal. His various roles brought him into direct contact with patients at the high security psychiatric hospital Broadmoor. We heard about the facilities and modernisation of the hospital and Richard's direct interactions with patients including Reggie Kray and Peter Sutcliffe. Richard also had contact with Jimmy Saville who was closely associated with the hospital for over thirty years and abused his position of trust there.
