‘I’d rather quit my job than blow the whistle on GP colleagues again’


Speak to someone who has acted on behalf of the bullied; this is a serious problem. The bottom line is this. If practices don't learn to handle this like grown ups, the danger is that a disgruntled whistle blower will gather all the evidence, then submit the evidence to the CQC/GMC/NHS Englad and also sue for every penny the practice has. There is no upper limit to damages in whistle blowing cases. I went to a seminar by and they outlined how this is going to affect every practice when ordinary staff learn to leverage their employment claims.
