Former doctor Michael Salmon has been found guilty of indecently assaulting girls at a hospital where Jimmy Savile abused patients.
The 79-year-old was found guilty of nine indecent assaults and two rapes carried out against six girls at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Buckinghamshire.
Reading Crown Court heard the attacks took place between 1973 and 1988.
He was struck off the medical register after admitting indecent assault against female patients in 1991.
The court heard Salmon carried out many of his attacks behind a screen in his consulting room, while his victim's parents waited, believing he was completing a medical examination. One of the rapes he was convicted of too place at his home.
Although he worked at Stoke Mandeville while Jimmy Savile abused patients at the hospital, their offending is not believed to be linked, jurors heard.
