No NHS personnel to speak publicly about coronavirus | Society


The Guardian may reveal that health care professionals are silenced and threatened with disciplinary action for speaking about their work during the coronavirus epidemic.

Many NHS staff are increasingly concerned that their ability to share stories about their work is limited by a crackdown on public speaking.

It follows reports that doctors and nurses have been gagged by hospitals and other NHS agencies to denounce the widespread shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE). Tactics include threatening emails, the possibility of disciplinary action and some people even fired from work.
