A suicide note found in the car of Junior Doctor Rose Polge included a reference to Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt, the authorities have revealed.
A woman’s body was recovered from the sea east of Portland Bill headland in Dorset on 1 April and police are currently working on the belief that the body is that of 25-year-old missing person Rose Polge, from Torquay.
The junior doctor was an active campaigner against plans to change working hours and conditions for junior doctors. Earlier this year she posted a new Facebook profile picture featuring the hashtag #NotFairNotSafe, which has become a trademark of the campaign against the government’s changes to junior doctor contracts.
According to the BBC, a note found in Dr Polge’s included a passing reference to Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt, although it related mainly to personal issues.
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
