The heart doctor turned whistleblower who won his unfair dismissal case said he felt he needed to speak out because the trust repeatedly ignored his complaints about the treatment of patients.
Dr Raj Mattu told BBC Radio 4's Today programme:
I was rather concerned that the reason I came into medicine, which was to care for patients and to hopefully save lives, was not a priority or certainly a primary aspect of what managers in the hospital in Coventry were focused on.
Patient safety was regularly put at risk and patients were dying that I felt would not have died at other hospitals I had worked at.
