A whistleblower NHS worker has publicly resigned and claimed she had ‘no work for three weeks’ at the height of the pandemic.
A viral Facebook video shows Shelley Tasker – believed to be a healthcare assistant at Treliske hospital, which is part of the Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust – telling members of the public what is ‘really going on’ behind closed doors in NHS hospitals.
In the clip filmed outside a church with a crowd gathering, Shelley, who is a mother and part-time photographer from Camborne, Cornwall, takes to a microphone and says: ‘As much as I’ve always loved our NHS, it’s no longer our NHS. It’s run by the corrupt government and the people running this company.
‘We no longer have health care, we can’t see dentists. I can tell you now when I was working at the height of the pandemic I had no work for three weeks because there were no patients. We have a particular Covid ward. None of the wards were overflowing with Covid patients and they’re not now.’
She went on to claim that the flu and Covid cases are now recorded as ‘the same thing’ on death certificates.
In response to cheers from the crowd, she continues: ‘I can tell you on Friday in Treliske there were three people in with Covid. No extra deaths, three – and that covers Treliske, West Cornwall and Hayle hospital.
‘The total deaths from these three hospitals in seven months, is 76 people – that’s about ten people a month over the last seven months, and we have locked down. NHS figures show that 67 people died from Covid-19 at Treliske hospital between March and September.
Shelley starts her speech by saying: ‘Today I am publicly resigning OK? I am wearing this uniform sadly for the last time. I absolutely loved my job, those of you who have been following what’s going on, we’ve done tasks, we’ve organised protests, I’ve had a lot of flack.
‘We’re at the point now it’s all coming back to me. I’ve had an email from work last night asking me what’s going on, people are reporting me and unfortunately I can’t lie any more.
‘I did something really bad. I took a screenshot on Friday which shows the figures of how many people are in Treliske hospital with Covid and I shared it, because this should be public information.’
‘Lots of people have to start speaking out, there’s lot of doctors and nurses who have come forward. They’re all on restrictive duties, they’re all seeing solicitors etc.’
Even during the peak of the first wave of coronavirus in the UK, Covid-19 patients never accounted for more than 30 per cent of all hospital patients and tens of thousands of vacated beds went unused during the spring
A leaked NHS report suggests there are still fewer than average numbers of beds in use in NHS hospital, despite normal hospital care resuming and a surge in the number of people who are being treated for Covid-19
Shelley says that on Friday in Treliske there were three people in with Covid – which covers Treliske, West Cornwall and Hayle hospital
‘I’ve decided there’s no point, I have gone against the rules of the NHS and have shared confidential information that people need to see. ‘
Shelley goes on to allege that anyone who thinks lockdown is going to make a difference are ‘completely wrong.’
‘Our economy is going to crash, small businesses, people are going to starve,’ she says. ‘You think it’s going to be a month? We were flattening the curve back in April – and this was when the disease was supposedly dying out. The lockdown came in then.’
‘Why are our children allowed to go to school but we have to carry on? Because at the moment, they want us to work. But that’s not going to happen because the schools will be closed soon.
‘So the cases in the hospital, there’s three people in Treliske hospital with Covid – that was on Friday.
She went on to claim that the flu and Covid cases are now recorded as the same thing.

Many people took to the comments section to praise Shelley for speaking out (pictured)
‘If you died with Covid within 28 days that goes on your death certificate,’ she explains. ‘You may not realise as well that the flu numbers have gone right down. Where have they gone?’
‘The PCR tests were not designed for diagnosing this disease – 94 per cent of them are false positives. We say no, to no more lockdowns.’
She continues: ‘Social distancing – there’s nothing social about it. How many people have died because of the lockdown because they’ve not had their treatments.
‘I’ve got a friend whose mum committed suicide. When is this going to end? It is doing more damage closing the country and hospitals than keeping it open. Screw the social distancing, we need to fight back.’
And it wasn’t long before the post was flooded with comments from people praising Shelley for speaking out.
‘Brilliant brave lady. More NHS staff need to speak the truth, this is the most important issue you will ever face. Ask yourself why are they doing this?’ wrote one, while a second penned: ‘You go girl thank you for your honesty ….pity more don’t speak out.’
