Many thanks to everyone who supported Margaret. Earlier this month, the High Court approved the replacement of Margaret's striking off order with a one year caution. This means that Margaret can now return to nursing straight away.
A message from Margaret: "I have been overwhelmed and humbled by the patient and public interest in my case and would like to thank everyone who has supported me, including the RCN for running my appeal. I found it hugely comforting over this difficult period."
This petition is for members of the nursing profession and the general public who want to show their support for nurse Margaret Haywood.
Margaret was struck off the nursing register by the Nursing and Midwifery Council for taking part in a television programme which highlighted instances of poor patient care.
We believe that Margaret was justified in exposing the worrying conditions at her hospital and that the documentary shed light on matters that the public deserved to know about.
We, the undersigned, wish to show our support for nurse Margaret Haywood who raised issues of concern around poor patient care.
We believe that Margaret was justified in exposing the worrying conditions at her local hospital and that the NMC was wrong to strike her off the nursing register.
