NHS whistleblower's 'supergag'


The Today programme has uncovered details of payments totalling £500,000 made to a senior NHS hospital manager attached to a confidentiality agreement so strict he cannot even talk about its existence.

The former chairman of the NHS trust involved describes it as a super gag and says this money was paid in return for the manager's silence on an issue of patient safety.

Andrew Hosken reports.
