The late Jimmy Savile used his position as one of the top British television hosts to obtain virtually unrestricted access of the Broadmoor psychiatric hospital in Berkshire, England. As an apparent reward for his charitable fund-raising activities for the hospital, according to a London Daily Mail, Savile was given his own set of keys to the facility and a home on hospital grounds. He was also given a board position at the hospital for which he was paid the equivalent of about $2,000 a month. Although he had no medical training, Savile was referred to in hospital records as “doctor” and received “unchecked access to patients, despite concerns from staff about his behavior,” the newspaper reported.
