Anti-whistle-blowing Policy

We're waiting for Dr West to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Health Education England,

Please can you provide a copy of all anti-whistle-blowing policies across all deaneries in England.

In particular can you please provide a copy of the active West Midland deanery / Prof. Russell Smith's discreet but very effective 'anti-whistle-blowing policy' that has been used to protect questionable doctors by removing from training junior doctors that speak out in the West Midlands (the Swiss cheese effect has many layers). For example Dr Paterson http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/04/... , Dr Bramwell http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-bir... and a whole host of other doctors that have got away by passing blame onto junior doctors especially when patients die or have serious adverse effects that are then hidden without candour.

If possible also update foi email addresses you hold for all your sub-organisations.

Yours faithfully,

Dr West
