NHS job applicants are now protected if they made (or appear to have made) a protected disclosure in previous NHS employment.

New regulations took effect in May 2018 making it unlawful for NHS employers to discriminate against an applicant because it appears to them that the applicant made a protected disclosure.

These are The Employment Rights Act 1996 (NHS Recruitment – Protected Disclosure) Regulations 2018
