A heart doctor turned whistleblower who exposed NHS safety fears said he felt "vindicated" after winning an unfair dismissal case following a long dispute with hospital bosses.
Cardiologist Raj Mattu claimed there was not enough protection available for whistleblowers in the NHS and added that he wants a meeting with Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt to address his concerns.
Dr Mattu exposed fears for patient safety and overcrowding at Walsgrave Hospital in Coventry in 2001, claiming there may have been avoidable deaths as a result.
He was then "vilified and bullied" by the University Hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust during a years-long "witch hunt", according to his lawyers Ashfords LLP.
