Elizabeth Cotton. “NHS/Whistleblowing”
Elizabeth's talk will look at the state of health and social care in the UK from the perspective of the people that deliver those services. From whistleblowing to bullying the working culture in the NHS has been described as operating under a 'pervasive culture of fear'. This talk will look at the systemic and workplace factors that are keeping people from speaking up about what's happening to health and social care. We will also look at how people survive working in the sector.
