Petition launched in support of whistleblowing nurse

A petition in support of the nurse who was struck off after exposing poor patient care on BBC's Panorama has been launched by the Royal College of Nursing (RCN).

RCN member Margaret Haywood was removed from the register of nurses by an NMC panel last week for taking part in a television programme which highlighted poor patient care.

The RCN is surprised at the severity of the punishment. Its legal team is working with Ms Haywood to explore the legal options available to her.

There is an online petition or www.rcn.org.uk and a Facebook group called ‘Margaret Haywood – show your support for the whistleblowing nurse’.

  • Should Margaret appeal against the decision?
