A children’s doctor has admitted a string of sexual offences against cancer sufferers in his care aged as young as 11.
Dr Myles Bradbury pleaded guilty to six counts of sexual assault and 13 counts of engaging in sexual activity with a child.
He also pleaded guilty to three counts of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.
The 41-year-old paediatric haematologist at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, in Cambridge, appeared at Cambridge Crown Court today.
Wearing a dark suit and blue tie, Bradbury also pleaded guilty to one count of voyeurism and two counts of making indecent images of a child
The offences involved 18 complainants which date back to 2009, prosecutor John Farmer said.
Bradbury was bailed and told he would have to sign the sex offenders register.
He pleaded not guilty to a count of sexual activity with a child and a count of sexual assault.
Judge Gareth Hawkesworth said the two offences will probably remain on file.
A sentencing date was not given but the judge said Bradbury could expect a “substantial” custodial sentence.
As he left court, Bradbury told reporters: “I’m so sorry.” He refused to answer further questions.
