A review into the treatment of NHS whistleblowers has heard "shocking" accounts of suffering of staff who raised concerns. The chair of the inquiry, Sir Robert Francis, had told the BBC a "significant proportion" of health workers were afraid to speak up when they saw poor care or failings in patient safety. But he said there had been progress in improving accountability in the NHS. Sir Robert will publish his recommendations later this morning. John Humphrys spoke to a whistle-blower and Sir Robert Francis.
