The outrageous confessions of a retiring NHS whistleblower. Doctoring used to be like Downing Street. Posh unaccountable alcoholics working silly hours, cocking up, covering up and laughing it off. Then I broke ranks and ruined it. For 37 years I've worked in the NHS and exposed its darkest secrets. The NHS is still dangerously understaffed and error-strewn but now everybody knows it. I've spawned an army of regulators, lawyers and aggressively informed patients demanding excellent care in a collapsing service. You're even supposed to know what you're doing and prove it. How unfunny is that?
