The Lampard report was published in England and Wales following investigations into the activities of Jimmy Savile relating to the NHS. Voluntary Health Scotland and the Scottish Health Council are working together to explore the implications of the Lampard Report for NHSScotland and third sector volunteers.
The Lampard Report sought to:
- identify the common themes from all the NHS investigation reports into matters relating to Jimmy Savile,
- look at NHS-wide guidelines and procedures in the light of the findings and recommendations of all the NHS investigation reports,
- seek relevant expert advice (if appropriate), and
- advise the Secretary of State for Health on whether and how any relevant guidelines or procedures need to be tightened or changed.

The report does not recognise the relationships between NHS bodies and third sector organisations which engage volunteers in health settings. In the past two years a number of incidents have arisen in Scotland which have exposed a lack of governance and a lack of guidance for NHS Boards in relation to the local arrangements with third sector organisations.
A meeting will be held on 30 July 10:00 -12:00 at Voluntary Health Scotland, Mansfield Traquair Centre, 15 Mansfield Place, Edinburgh EH3 6BB.
