Social care no place for secrets

IF SOCIETY’S wrongs are to be righted, if the problems that continue to simmer away undetected in many spheres of life are to be disclosed and resolved, then the importance of the whistleblower should not be underestimated.

In some misguided sections of society, those who “grass”, or “inform” to the police, are derided and cast into the wilderness.

This is an attitude which needs to change – and the case of Martin Morton, who spoke out about the scandal of vulnerable adults in the care of Wirral social services being outrageously overcharged, should help establish firm guidelines for how such incidents are treated in the future.
