Dr Ranson: Tribunal outcome 'didn't feel like success'

Former medical director speaks to BBC Radio 4

Dr Rosalind Ranson won her claim of unfair dismissal as a result of whistleblowing against the Department of Health and Social Care last year.

Earlier this year, the tribunal awarded her a record-breaking payout of £3.2m.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4's 'File on 4' programme, she discussed the behaviour she experienced after raising concerns over government's handling of the Covid-19 pandemic.

She highlighted a number of issues discussed during the tribunal, including her belief that the Island should have closed the borders sooner, the behaviour of the then-chief executive of the DHSC and the handling of the Island's vaccine rollout.
