The South West Whistleblowers Health Action Group (SWWHAG) was formed in September 2011 by members of the public who have had good and bad experiences of using healthcare services and have been actively and constructively involved in NHS service changes.
Our members have a wide range of professional experience of working in healthcare, education, public and private sector service delivery, programme management, procurement, risk and change management, transport and media. Our skills and experience put us in an excellent position to constructively scrutinise the propriety and professional conduct of public officers in the NHS and other organisations.
The catalyst that brought us together is a shared sense of outrage at the conduct and outcome of the Bristol Histopathology Inquiry. This showed us that, in Bristol of all places, the lessons of the Bristol Royal Infirmary Heart Scandal have not been learned.
We aim to do something about it. This website will show you how we get on.
“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing”
Edmund Burke, MP for Bristol, 1774 to 1780
