A whistle-blowers story of being failed by the NMC and CQC.
This account by whistle-blower HH should be read, there is no protection for whistle-blowers and this is the result. We wrote to the NMC over two two years ago asking what safeguards they had in place to deal with counter allegations against whistle-blowers, we have yet to receive a response. Meanwhile we are continuing to see an increasing number of whistle-blowing nurses being falsely reported for misconduct as a method of discrediting and demoralising a whistle-blower. I am yet to find a single case of a nurse being struck off for making false accusations that amount to perjury. The CQC also continue to fail whistle-blowers and leave vulnerable people at risk. That is why we campaign to protect whistle-blowers it is the only way to stop abuse.
Meanwhile caring and dedicated staff like HH are driven out of the care system for caring.
