  • Comment on: Whistleblowing laws 'must change', says union

    Jenny Nicoll's comment 7 November, 2013 11:37 am

    I was forced out of my job, (after 39 years in the NHS), as a full-time health visitor last year for whistleblowing in order to protect a child in a child protection case.
    UNITE refused to support my case to Employment Tribunal. What is the point of paying union fees and all the rhetoric of union speak when they do not support their individual members. Despite my case being completed UNITE still refuse to pay my legal fees.
    Sadly I can see no change, in the NHS, with regards to Whistleblowing or with regards to Child Protection (when you raise concerns you are bullied and harassed). I was disciplined for Gross Misconduct for raising Child Protection concerns (which was overturned at appeal).
    At least I prevented a child from suffering further abuse or suffering serious injury or possible death by my actions.
