A whistleblowing healthcare worker at Noble’s Hospital in the Isle of Man has spoken about the fear culture that is spreading though the workforce.

The Nurse (Nurse A), speaking about coronavirus, has said that they have inadequate protection equipment and they feel like ‘cannon fodder’. Nurse A claims that they fear they’ll lose their jobs if they speak out.

Staff have also been told they are following the Public Health England Guidelines, yet frontline staff in England have been provided with PPE.

Nurse A told Energy News that some of the frontline staff are not being provided with basic PPE while having to treat patients, sometimes just inches from their face depending on the injury.

The DHSC has been approached for comment.
