I have been missing for a while as I have had no internet access - my computer broke and I had to get a new one and then I struggled to set up my internet.
Margaret Haywood is a nurse who did undercover filming for television and has now been struck off by the NMC for breaching patient confidentiality. This means that all health care professionals are at risk of being struck off if they tell the public what is happening - management really don't want you to know how bad your local hospital is. This includes bloggers, so I have been unable to write much recently as (apart from no internet) I have been unable to find things which were anonymous enough to not be recognisable.
The RCN is fighting for her and there is an online petition to help her available here http://www.gopetition.com/online/27030.html please sign it, every little helps.
Unfortunately Margaret was always going to be struck off, this is not new and I have blogged before about how shabbily Graham Pink was treated 20 years ago and nothing has changed.
