HAPPY NEW YEAR and wishing you all a year full of happiness and Peace.
Thank you for all your kind support and donations to help raise £10,000 via crowd justice.
Donations ranged from £5 to £5,000 as well numerous tweets/retweets and sharing the campaign in Facebook. £7,000 was raised within 3 days and within 2 weeks £10,000 was raised.
There was huge public support and I was really touched by all the lovely, kind and thoughtful messages. There are lots of caring people out there and to whom I will always be grateful.
I had however, received a very unpleasant letter on the afternoon of last working day before Christmas, asking me to remove the Crowd Justice Page or risk facing legal action. Although I have not yet published this letter, I will do so in due course.
Having raised the much needed funds, this will now:
- Enable me to get the much needed legal help
- Send a strong message to other staff who want to raise concerns and to their employers – i.e. that there is a huge public support for NHS whistle blowers and covering up/victimisation is not acceptable as it compromises patient safety
- Encourage changes from the current system of staff persecution when concerns are raised. Instead look at these concerns.
- Getting rid of staff who will be left without income and a job does not mean that they can’t fight back. They will have the public behind them
I have met with my legal team, who is in contact with HCA International.
Date of employment tribunal has not been confirmed but I will update you on this.
Maybe you can come and support.
THANK YOU once again for your invaluable support and kindness
