NHS Forth Valley Policies for Staff (FOI correspondence)


“I have just received this REPLY (24 Oct 2014) and have posted it below. The question that this reply raises in my mind is how many employees like myself have resigned from an NHS Board or Health Authority  after “informal” “invitations” in regards to any of their policies?

Is there is an asymmetry of power here that favours the institution over the individual?

What might be the costs? Well duty of candour may be a “casualty”. The unintentional creation of a “culture of fear” might be a further consequence.

I appreciate this is a difficult area but as a doctor interested in ethics I am of the opinion that it needs further exploration.”
