Many doctors angry at striking off of nurse whistleblower


I think the striking off was harsh (just take a look at the NMC professional hearings & the decisions they make - no consistent approach) - but, at the same time it appears that Ms Haywood did not follow procedures - we are all bound by these each time we accept our salary at the end of the month. Unions are there to support us when our employers do not listen; as is the fundamental principle of the NMC - protecting the public - who are our patients. It almost serves as a warning to all practising nurses & midwives - be very careful what you do or say with any information about what you see as substandard care if you have not tried to do anything about it locally. Did the relatives/patients featured in the documentary complain?
