All the alleged victims were staff members of Blackpool Victoria Hospital, according to Lancashire Police.

The hospital notified authorities on March 14 last year, reporting several allegations of sexual assault by employees. Subsequent investigations and consultations with the Crown Prosecution Service led to the charges against Bose.

Before these complaints surfaced, Bose held the position of head of the cardiovascular surgery department at Blackpool Victoria Hospital.

A spokesperson for the Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, responsible for managing the hospital, confirmed the charges and emphasised their cooperation with the police investigation.

The Trust also sought to reassure patients and their families, affirming that the hospital continues to provide services in a safe and caring environment, as reported by PTI.
