The new groups in charge of NHS commissioning in Bexley and Dartford have alerted GPs to the chance victims of Jimmy Savile may come forward.
A letter from NHS England medical director Sir Bruce Keogh to all Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) says doctors should be aware those abused by the former BBC TV star could present themselves as investigations into his crimes continue.
You mean, while there's still cash to be had? Bet they dry up when the money does!
Professor Keogh says not all victims may live within reach of support services set up around the three hospitals.
He said: "The investigation teams are in the process of contacting victims and other witnesses in order to take statements from them, with the possibility of then interviewing them.
"It is likely that many of those who are contacted about their recollections of Jimmy Savile will find it extremely distressing and disturbing to have to relive their experiences."
Grief counsellors everywhere have little '£' signs in their eyes at that statement...
Professor Keogh must have missed the lecture about Compensation Neurosis at medical school. Well documented: symptoms tend to disappear once the cheque has been cashed.

What's he proposing. Laying on buses?
At the rate its going, there just might be enough compensation to cover the fares.
I'm sure the alert to look out for more victims of the numerous (actually convicted in court on evidence) 'Asian' - nudge nudge, wink wink - grooming gangs would also have been at the bottom of the memo....?
Looks like Jim Fixed It for them to get a nice big payout.

Blimey, don't give him ideas...
