Transparent EEAST crest

You may be aware that on Monday 14th October, a former EEAST employee appeared at Cambridge Court, in connection with the alleged rape and sexual assault of a number of women. The case has been passed to Peterborough Crown Court. for a hearing on 11th November.

We recognise that this could be uncomfortable news for many of his former colleagues and patients. It is also possible that other allegations may come to light, as a result of the charges being made public.

We would encourage anyone with concerns in relation to these allegations, to call a dedicated number for volunteers, public and staff on 01603 481225 at any time, or call police on 01480 422567.
