Nullify non-disclosure agreements/gagging orders for NHS staff for covid-19

Petition Details

Pass legislation to make null and void any non-disclosure agreements or gagging orders, irrespective of when entered into, when related to covid-19 (sars-cov-2), and to protect any staff who speak out. Apply to all current and former employees, directly or indirectly employed by the NHS.

Additional Information

The Coronavirus (sars-cov-2) pandemic has had profound implications on society in the UK, and on the NHS. NHS staff, either presently employed or previously employed, have a wealth of experience to learn from. There should be no barriers to NHS staff (present or former, direct or indirect) to freely speak out, to enable lessons to be learnt from this pandemic. Furthermore this should not be done "when the dust settles", but now, when there is still time to make a difference.
