Staffordshire and the appalling treatment of patients and staff is back in the news again. Dr Pal, blew the whistle very very early with this, bravely as a junior doctor doing the right thing and trying to get help for patients. The culture she was exposed to was awful, medical staff are often bullied out of their careers for raising serious concerns affecting the public, and as we know patients often lose their care. Dr Pal has continued to help behind the scenes with medical staff bullied or over investigated by the regulator for doing the right thing.
At the High Court the medical regulator was described as a totalitarian regime! Dr Pal lost her entire career over sticking up for the public
The paper she and her colleagues wrote is better than anything the government has come up with.
I need help promoting this paper, via signatures for the petition. The DoH is ignoring the paper, written by somebody who understands the culture and was actually there, however if the signatures reach a certain point they will be forced to read it.
How to help, well signing it of course,... AND then passing on via twitter, facebook, email, anyway you can, to get your friends, family, work colleagues or anybody to sign.
The petition has the potential for literally thousands of signatures!
