‘The Court of Appeal has reversed the decision of the Employment Appeal Tribunal which had decided that a junior doctor’s contention that he was “a worker” in relation to Health Education England should be struck out as having no reasonable prospect of success. The decision is of importance not only to junior doctors but also more generally. Martin Fodder and Jeremy Lewis, two of the authors of Whistleblowing, Law and Practice, 3rd Edition, OUP, 2017 of Littleton, consider the judgment. David Reade QC and Nicholas Siddall (both also of Littleton) appeared in the case representing Health Education England.’
