NHS whistleblowing. The good, the bad and the ugly.
A webinar led by Mr. Peter Duffy, FRCS, author of “Whistle in the Wind: A Whistleblower's Story”.
The webinar will provide an important and unmissable portrayal of how a toxic NHS management culture can harm patients and destroy the careers and lives of dedicated healthcare professionals. It will highlight a series of injustices, will reveal appalling wrongdoings within the NHS and will show what the NHS does to staff who speak up and how much public money it wastes fighting people that act in the public interest.
It will discuss:
- Peter’s experience following his reporting to the Care Quality Commission of a series of near misses in 2014-15, leading on to an avoidable death, cover-up and ongoing surgical risk-taking.
- The avoidable deaths and errors, near misses, cover-ups, misuse of public funds, bullying, abuse and victimisation experienced by Peter.
- Peter’s demotion, punishments and exile from both family and the NHS and the subsequent brutal legal process that followed his illegal dismissal.
- The effects that the actions of others were having on patient safety and why Peter challenged behaviours in the way he did.
