Whistleblowing and Safeguarding Concerns at the Tavistock and Portman

My name is Dr Lynne Amidon and I am a Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist and Team Manager working for the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust. I qualified as a Child Psychotherapist in 1999 and have spent the past 24 years of my life working with abused and neglected children trying to ensure they are given the best care, protection and safeguarding whilst under the auspices of the State system.

I am raising funds to bring legal claims against the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust in the employment tribunal. Some of these legal claims may involve whistleblowing claims and discrimination. My claim centers around my belief that I have been subjected to detriments because I brought concerns to my employers about child safeguarding.
