GP locums – When to blow the whistle in the NHS

Should you ‘blow the whistle’ if you suspect a practice is failing? Dr Judith Harvey provides valuable advice.  

As a locum, you are in a very strong position. Sitting in colleagues’ rooms, reading their patients’ notes and using their equipment means you see practices from the inside.

You are also in a very weak position. You are isolated. If you encounter something worrying, then wondering whether you are justified in bringing it to someone’s attention can make you feel very vulnerable.
