BMA Wales says suspension threat stops concerns being raised

The fear of being suspended from work is deterring doctors from raising concerns about the NHS, according to a doctors' union.

The British Medical Association (BMA) in Wales said the current system acts as a barrier to flagging up issues.

They have also criticised how long inquiries into concerns take, with some cases taking more than two years.

The Welsh government said there should be no victimisation of those raising genuine fears.

Phil Banfield, chairman of the BMA's Welsh council outlined the issues the body was raising.
