“It is simply not plausible that the man [David Nicholson] who was supposed to be running the NHS was seemingly unaware that employees threatening to speak out were being offered golden goodbyes in return for a vow of silence. As the accounting officer who has presided over this culture he is either complicit in a systemic cover-up or has failed to ask questions. If he knew about them he has misled Parliament. The culture in the NHS needs to change, he has to stand down now. What patient safety concerns have been covered up [by these gagging orders]? How many lives have been put at risk?”
