The Trust, East Kent Hospital University Foundation Trust (EKHUFT) have opened an investigation into sexual misconduct.
This means there are now two investigations, one being led by an independent investigator via and through the Kent & Medway Integrated Care Board for and on behalf of EKHUFT
As we have said before and say again:
Sexual harassment, sexual assault, referred to as sexual misconduct, are unacceptable at our Trust. This must not be an “everyday experience” for anyone in our Trust.
EKHUFT have said:
“we encourage any members of staff who have been affected and wish to share their experiences to contact us. We will treat all contact in confidence and provide all the necessary support.”
