Justice for Whistleblowers. A new Era Dawns
The end of 2015 brought us a positive story in our newsfeed, and it was one which excited us here at
Your Voice Matters. VASANTA MARNI SUDDOCK - and - THE NURSING AND MIDWIFERY COUNCIL.
Could this be the turning point for people working in care settings? Could the tide be turning?
Care home staff, just like families and the residents themselves, are victims of bullying care home providers. Only those that have walked this pathway of trying to find justice will understand what a difficult journey this is, one that often feels impossible, and for the majority this has proven to be the case.
Power, money and fear rule our care home sector.
We hope this case 4½ year journey for Vasanta will have built a foundation for the future of whistleblowers, to end bullying and victimisation of care staff in NHS and Social Care.
