Mon 05/12/2016 - CQC continue to fail Whistle-blowers

See the below link for a new report on whistle-blowing by Minh Alexander, Pam Linton, Clare Sardari and a fourth NHS Whistle-blower.
CQC incompetence and complacency has cost countless lives and allowed abuse and neglect to continue unchecked, The conduct of the CQC can no longer be excused or justified, the rot goes too deep and the harm done has reached epic proportions. Its time to blow the final whistle on CQC and hold them to account.

Wed 30/11/2016 - Smearing Whistle-blowers

No End To Smear Campaigns.

I have known Ian Perkin the NHS Whistle-blower for a number of years and know that he is a genuine Whistle-blower and a man of great integrity. Anyone who read all the evidence in Ian Perkins Whistle-blowing case could only conclude that a grave injustice has taken place.

It was a privilege to know and work with Gavin
Our thoughts are with his family and all those who loved him.

Thu 20/10/2016 - Public or Self Interest?

The below story was published last month and focuses on whistle blowing in the financial sector and is an insight into how some people view whistle-blowing.
