NHS staff who wanted to blow the whistle on poor practice among their colleagues were promised a new deal in 2015 when Sir Robert Francis recommended the creation of the National Guardians Office, which encouraged the “freedom to speak up.” This followed scandals at Stafford Hospital and Gosport War Memorial Hospital where concerns raised by workers were ignored – with deadly consequences.

Despite the optimism created by the arrival of the NGO, Health Service staff who speak out in public still risk being victimised as Stephen Colegrave has revealed in a series of articles for Byline Times. In this episode presenter Adrian Goldberg explores why the system isn’t working with Stephen, former NHS whistleblower David Drew, and Michelle Russell, a nurse who hasn’t worked for 5 years after reporting an assault by a co-worker.
