Whistleblowing Rights for Junior Doctors in Training: Clear as Mud

13 November 2017

This document concerns the BMA’s recent guidance on the extent to which junior doctors are protected from retaliation following their blowing of the whistle. In particular, this paper is concerned with the recent FAQ: Whistleblowing & Junior Doctors. It is the opinion of Public Concern at Work (PCaW) that the position taken by the BMA is not only largely incorrect, but disingenuous, and risks harming the confidence of doctors who find themselves in a position where they need to speak up about patient safety.

What can you do to help?
