    NHS whistleblowers bullied.

    NHS whistleblowers bullied and threatened for speaking out against failing patient care standards

    THE Sunday Mail has seen a new report claiming NHS managers have fabricated evidence to smear staff identified as whistleblowers who have raised concerns over poor patient care.

    Some medical workers claimed they were blacklisted and had promotions withdrawn after speaking out.

    The Patients First study heard evidence from 70 whistleblowers across Britain, including 16 in Scotland.

    The report described their treatment as “shocking” and said there is a “culture of fear” in the NHS and “bullying is an almost universal feature”.

    Read more on this from Billy Briggs of The Scottish Daily Record HERE




    This indictment has become "old hat" from previous cases of this kind of bullying and yet nothing appears to have been done about it.

    I wonder when we are going to see some action against these power-crazy bullies as the only way we are going to find out about hidden problems within the NHS seems to be via the reports we get from such whistleblowers ?

    What do you think of this ?

    There is nothing new about this as there has been bullying in the NHS for many years.

    There is just not enough support for whistleblowers in the NHS.

    Got to agree with you wholeheartedly on that one Zath'.

    Instead of prosecuting whistleblowers - so long as what they say is true and accurate - they, ( the establishment ), should be supporting them, as it is only via whistleblowing that many flaws in our hidden society can be shown the light of day.

    I guess it comes down to the kind of whistleblowers that we might find out there.

    What I mean by that is that some whistleblowers contravene national security when they release dangerous information this way.

    Yes, I am thinking about Wikileaks !

    Of course you are right there Angie, but I am sure that if the British people were not kept in the dark as much as they are such national security revelations would not be required.
