Little stories of life and death @NHSwhistleblower     by Dr. David Drew

The Francis Report (2013) proclaimed the importance of openness, transparency and candour in the NHS.  Dr David Drew was a NHS Consultant in Paediatrics at Walsall Manor Hospital for over 19 years.  Concerns over poor care standards led him to become a whistleblower, which put him on a collision course with senior hospital managers, resulting in his dismissal.  David’s book Little Stories of Life and Death (2014) raises serious questions about the mis-treatment of NHS whistleblowers and exposes their personal and professional sacrifices.

When Julie Bailey took her Mother, Bella, into Mid Staffs Hospital in September 2007 she had no idea that her life was about to change forever. Over the next eight weeks she would witness such shocking neglect and abuse of elderly, vulnerable patients that the memories would haunt her for the rest of her life. And over the next five years she would uncover a culture of deceit and denial going right to the top of the NHS. From Ward to Whitehall is the story of Julie s fight for the truth to be uncovered about the deadly failings at Mid Staffs Hospital and her struggle to ensure that the tragedy would never be repeated.

The Establishment: And How They Get Away with it (Paperback)

by Owen Jones

Behind our democracy lurks a powerful but unaccountable network of people who wield massive power and reap huge profits in the process. In exposing this shadowy and complex system that dominates our lives, Owen Jones sets out on a journey into the heart of our Establishment, from the lobbies of Westminster to the newsrooms, boardrooms and trading rooms of Fleet Street and the City. Exposing the revolving doors that link these worlds, and the vested interests that bind them together, Jones shows how, in claiming to work on our behalf, the people at the top are doing precisely the opposite. In fact, they represent the biggest threat to our democracy today - and it is time they were challenged.
