The Solar Centre is an NHS-managed care centre at St Catherine’s Hospital in Doncaster. The centre cares for vulnerable adults.
The centre was investigated by the police when a former staff member resigned and made formal allegations about patients being mistreated and physically abused. This resulted in the suspension of four members of staff and the eventual criminal convictions of two former staff members in May 2013. Susan Murphy and James Hinds were convicted of 25 counts of various forms of abuse against 12 different patients between 2005 and 2007, although more people made allegations. The pair were each sentenced to 2 years and 9 months’ imprisonment.
