Speaking Up – Whistleblowing in the NHS


Dr Chris Day features in the BBC Radio Four Documentary File on Four Speaking Up – Whistleblowing in the NHS. Dr Day contends that there is a lack of protection for 43,000 junior doctors whose career progression is governed by the supervising body Health Education England. The Court of Appeal is due to hear the matter in March 2017 by way of an expedited appeal. Dr Day has received the benefit of over 4,000 individuals who have provided nearly £150,000 in donations making his claim one of the most successful instances of crowd-funding to date. Chris Milsom continues to act for Dr Day and has recently provided whistle-blowing training to the National Guardian Office, an independent body established in the wake of the Francis report on whistle-blowing in the NHS.
