defining the public interest Free speech, Human Rights, abuse investigations.

This book is ground breaking because,

It shakes the very foundations of the legal systems definition of both whistleblowing and public interest.

It challenges the misuse of the word Whistle blower by both the press and campaigns such as #MeToo.

It exposes the shocking failures of regulators and other authorities to act on the concerns of whistle blowers from all sectors.

It explains why the vested interests of the compliance and legal industries have taken precedence over the public interest and public safety.

A whistle-blower has re-written the law, with an unprecedented built in scrutiny system and a devastating common sense approach.

You will weep, feel angry and be inspired, most of all you will truly understand what whistleblowing is and how it affects everyone whether we have family in care, travel on public transport, use a bank, need a hospital, eat food, drink water or be safe as we go about our everyday lives.

If you are a journalist, lawyer, judge or a member of the public, this book is a must read.

About the Author

Eileen Chubbs experiences have given her a unique combination of an in depth knowledge of whistleblowing, the law related to it, and the consequences of failing to take action on concerns. From all these she has written Ednas Law to give effective protection to whistleblowers and the public interest.

She was one of the Bupa7, the first case to use the Public Interest Disclosure Act, after which she founded the charity Compassion In Care in 2003 and her helpline has supported over 7000 whistleblowers and over 5000 relatives of victims of silence.

In 2014 she co-founded The Whistler with the investigative journalist Gavin MacFadyen in response to the increasing number of non-care whistleblowers requesting support.

Eileen works closely with the media to expose abuse in care settings and also the responses of the Care Quality Commission and safeguarding authorities. She has been undercover in over 300 UK care homes.
