Health and police chiefs have apologised for delays in investigating the abuse of severely disabled patients at a Doncaster care centre – seven years after the issue first came to light.

A Serious Case Review into the abuse of patients at the Solar Centre, at Balby’s St Catherine’s Hospital, said different agencies should have worked better together and the families’ fight for justice should have been resolved sooner.

Complaints of abuse were first made in 2007, but it was not until last year that two members of staff at the unit were jailed.
