Sexual abuse is on the increase in English hospitals. A total of 1615 attacks were recorded in three years (2011, 2012 and 2013), which is a 50% rise since 2011. Statistics on sexual abuse reports in hospitals were released by 38 out of 45 UK police forces. They document 1,615 attacks that are known about including cases on NHS wards, private clinics, and other health centers. But prosecutors have said that up to 90% of sexual abuse goes unreported, suggesting the true figure could be much higher.Theguardian.com
