GP trainee claims he was reprimanded after highlighting A&E safety concerns


yup - the moral of the story is never whistle blow - you will not be supported. if you are going to whistle blow do it anonymously or leave first and preferbly emigrate then blow the whistle. no one and I mean no one will help you - what will happen is rather than the organisation looking at the problem they will view you as the problem and they will start looking for reasons to ruin your career. shame as he is young but it's a good lesson for him to learn that you have no friends in the NHS. Don't expect colleagues, the media, patient groups, any of the so-called watch dogs to help. it is confusing though because we are supposed to do the right thing but now-a-days doing the right thing is like putting a gun to your head.
