Many doctors angry at striking off of nurse whistleblower


I was for 15 years a recognised and qualified Nurse Investigator, working both in the private and public sector. I investigated everything from fraud to patient abuse for employers and the legal and insurance profession. Undercover work was a regular occurence, if I had been discovered in this role I would not have expected to have been struck off but congratulated on uncovering poor practice, abuse or worse. This nurse should be appluaded. If by chance the UKCC/NMC had decided to take me to tribunal they would have lost very publicly and to their great expense. I am a regular contributor to "have your say" and usually display my name but in this matter I will remain anonymous as I am still subject to confidentiality clauses in cases I was involved in. As a note although I have retired from investigation, I was replaced by another and I know personally several other investigators who work solely within the health care profession. Be warned, you never know who is looking over your shoulder at your practice and conduct.
