Allegations of voyeurism at a Shropshire hospital are no longer being investigating by police.

Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital

In November, West Mercia Police announced it was looking into reports of voyeurism at the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital in Gobowen, near Oswestry.

The investigation was in relation to two separate incidents that allegedly occurred on the site of the hospital, and a man in his 80s was interviewed by police.

Both of the alleged incidents are historic and are said to have occurred between 2014 and 2016. The man was interviewed voluntarily by police officers.

The allegations were made by a woman, who claims the alledged incidents occurred over a significant period of time.

West Mercia Police have now confirmed that “an investigation into reports of two non-recent voyeurism offences in Oswestry has concluded with no further action being taken at this time. All those involved have been notified.”

When the allegations first surfaced, the hospital said it was fully co-operating with the police, and that as the investigation was taking place, the man in question was asked not to use the hospital facilities.

Following the conclusion of the police investigation, the hospital has not said whether the man will be allowed to use its facilities again.

A spokesman for the hospital said: “We are aware of the decision taken by the police and are talking to all parties about how to proceed. We won’t comment any further in the interests of patient confidentiality.”
