Sharmila Chowdhury Whistleblower 6 with Jeremy Hunt via ITV London

Following from a letter sent to Jeremy Hunt, Health Secretary, by
Sharmila Chowdhury, a NHS whistleblower, and from the 6
whistleblowers to Simon Stevens, Head of NHS, a meeting was
arranged with Jeremy Hunt and Simon Stevens at Richmond House
on 18 June 2014 to discuss serious problems relating to NHS
whistleblowing. In attendance were other prominent whistleblowers.
The group described problems which surrounded whistlblowing and
the risks to patients which has resulted in NHS staff being too
scared to speak up. The group unanimously have demanded for
public inquiry, so that lessons can be learned and ‘correct’
measures can be implemented to protect all whistleblowers. Hunt
acknowledged that there were serious problems with whistleblowing
in the NHS and it was far from perfect. He also agreed there is a
still a long way to go.

Fiona Bell of Cure the NHS North East, helped broker the meeting for Sharmila Chowdhury and other whistleblowers
Well done to all getting into the media with national coverage.
