This Man must be Stopped

Mr Chris Burdon runs the Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust like a cult. If you are on the inside you are safe. But there is little hope for those outside who are the victims of malicious allegation by cult members.

Linda Ingles was the much respected matron of Malvern and Pershore Community Hospitals until she was mysteriously suspended in March 2014. Her career and life was ruined. After two years the accusations against her finally reached a hearing at the Nursing and Midwifery Council on 8th August. The Trust wanted her struck off. I attended the hearing on that day and the following day. I heard all the prosecution witnesses, sent down to London from Worcestershire by the Trust. It was a farce. They had no evidence and the case was thrown out the following day. Click here for my full account of the hearing, including what was said by the witnesses Sharon Buckley, Julia Dillon and Sue Lahiff.

BBTT wrote to Mr Burdon to ask what he intended to do to assist Linda to recover from the unwarranted wreckage of her career and to deal with those responsible. Mr Burdon has replied that he intends to do nothing. He puts all the blame on the NMC. For his full reply click here.
