Margaret Haywood a nurse of many years experience tried to alert the hospital authorities about the condition in the wards so she satisfied crucial parts of the UK "Whistleblowers Act " drafted as the : Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998
"After the hearing on Thursday, the nurse referred to recent stories of NHS failure: "Look at recent things that have been happening, especially with the Mid-Staffordshire hospital, nurses are afraid to speak out. The whole process needs to be reviewed so nurses can voice their concerns."
Hundreds of NHS staff have protested about Miss Haywood's treatment. She is considering appealing against the decision by the Council, which has already received hundreds of emails and phone calls from nurses furious about the ruling.HERE

"Background (Preamble): This petition is for members of the nursing profession and the general public who want to show their support for nurse Margaret Haywood. Margaret was struck off the nursing register by the Nursing and Midwifery Council for taking part in a television programme which highlighted instances of poor patient care. We believe that Margaret was justified in exposing the worrying conditions at her hospital and that the documentary shed light on matters that the public deserved to know about.
Petition: We, the undersigned, wish to show our support for nurse Margaret Haywood who raised issues of concern around poor patient care. We believe that Margaret was justified in exposing the worrying conditions at her local hospital and that the NMC was wrong to strike her off the nursing register. "
