Many doctors angry at striking off of nurse whistleblower


I deeply regret the way in which Ms. Haywood was enticed by Panorama to expose these truly dreadfull events. I am also saddened that she was naive enough to assume the BBC had her best interests at heart and did not seek the opinion of her Union prior to embarking upon this modus operandii. As for using the 'Data Protection Act' against her - we are, all of us, bound by the Law: even the most naive of us. The events exposed by Ms Haywood are a disgrace but two wrongs do not make a right: there were other, albeit less sensational, options open which need not have excluded such public exposure but as an end point rather than a starting point. An unpopular NMC decision does not actually make that decison a 'wrong' one.
