Karen Reissman sacked!
On Monday November 5th Manchester psychiatric nurse Karen Reissman was sacked on 4 counts. Firstly that, when she was interviewed in December 2006 criticising the transfer of NHS work to the voluntary sector, she brought the Trust into disrepute. Secondly, for telling people that she was suspended and what for. Thirdly, for protesting her innocence. Fourthly, for allowing the press to print information, some misleading about her case. The fifth charge of misusing time was dropped. All the charges were gross misconduct and all sackable offences.
If this was Burma or Iran there would be an outcry from New Labour politicians. Not to worry, it's just happening here.
