Many doctors angry at striking off of nurse whistleblower

Comment

This nurse should not be reprimanded as long as she can show that she has tried to alert some senior member of her own Trust to the problems. Instead she should be both praised and rewarded for her actions. If nurses will not oversee the welfare of their patients who will? Certainly not the 'bean counters'. The Nursing and Midwifery Council now needs to root out the self-serving people who struck her off in the first place. If they are willing to turn a blind eye to the corruptions of senior NHS Trust managers, whom they probably see as 'colleagues', then they are of no possible use in protecting vulnerable patients. Perhaps this ex-nurse might be seriously considered for a job on the Nursing and Midwifery Council? After all, she was actually doing the job for which she was paid.. and was then intimidated firstly by her own Trust and then by the Nursing and Midwifery Council. There are serious echoes of 'Graham Pink' here. Use of Data Protection Act against her is just disgusting. Long may such people thrive. This nurse deserves a medal!
