Quick Shoot The Messenger
I have just forced myself to sit through Panorama and the case of the 'whistleblower nurse' Margaret Hayward.
I am literally shaking with rage, that somebody who took the risk of exposing the wanton cruelty and neglect of the old and dying in the Royal Sussex by staff and management was struck off by the NMC for 'breaching the client confidentiality of her patients'. Her patients relatives and the RCN are behind her the Whistleblower legislation designed to protect people like Margaret Haywood fails when faced with institutional embarrassment and failure by the State.
Why is Margatet Hayward being punished FFS ?
The State has created a climate of fear amongst patients,nurses and staff, by those managers working in the 'caring' profession.
Margaret is faced with losing her means to earn her living and home, because she took the State on and 'won'. The vindictive shits in the NMC must recognise the 'overarching Public Interest' in this case, not seek to silence people like Margaret Hayward.
One day we will all be old and dying. Do you want to die alone, lying in your own filth and in pain. This is what Socialism is- the individual does not matter, the tractor Stats do.
There is a petition somewhere, I will link to it at some point, demanding her immediate reinstatement. If anybody has a practical plan that the people of this country can assist Margaret and people like her- I am all ears.
