    The mother of a student, who took his own life, said today she felt 'sick to her stomach' after an NHS communications manager labelled a media report on her son's suicide a 'malarkey'. Pippa Travis-Williams, whose son Henry was found dead days after leaving a mental health unit run by the Norfolk and Suffolk Foundation Trust (NSFT) in 2016, said an email sent by NSFT communications manager Mark Prentice to his boss was 'disgusting'. It comes weeks after Mr Prentice gloated in another email to his boss that the NSFT had 'got away (again)' with media coverage of the death of a dementia patient. In an email to his boss, explaining why NSFT chief executive, Jonathan Warren, was going on BBC Look East, Mr Prentice said the NSFT might look 'uncaring' if Mr Warren did not appear and then described the coverage of Mr Curtis-Williams' suicide as a 'malarkey'.

    Following the posting of the recent anonymous blog by a brave nurse - a discussion was started on Twitter about the aspect of accountability, duty of candour mixed with a no blame culture. If there has been a drug error: The person who did the error needs to feel secure in the knowledge that there is a no blame culture, otherwise they may not report it in the first place. The patient needs to be told that they has been an error with their care The person who did the error needs to be held to account So, can these three points coexist or are we wanting the impossible?

    I was once working in a private operating theatre where, to my horror, the surgeon accidentally dropped an instrument on the floor, picked it up and reused it without it going through a steriliser. In my 30 years of working as a theatre nurse, I had never seen anything like this. I felt sick to my stomach! Is this what happens in private hospitals? I reported it immediately to the senior staff on duty and also the theatre manager. I also sent through a report at the end of the case. Nothing happened, except my shifts were blocked for reporting the incident . I no longer work in that hospital. I feel hurt. My mental health has also suffered as I feel tortured. I question myself. Did I do the right thing by reporting it? Because now I do not have a job and I am using my savings to survive. If I was a permanent member of staff, I would still be working. Is this why staff do not report incidents? For fear of losing their jobs? What about the safety of the patient? I tried calling to speak to anyone who would listen. I did not have any luck – I found all avenues were blocked. There was no Speak Up Guardians in post. I feel I did the right thing by reporting it, but I was not supported by management. Where is the system in private hospitals to protect locum theatre staff? Why is this allowed to go on? In theatres, we are the patient's advocate. We are only there to ensure the patient is safe at all times. Would I do things differently if it happens again, now that I know the consequences? Yes! Absolutely 100%. I will continue to speak up and send through a report. What will you do?
