I noted with interest the advice of Bedford Hospital trust chief executive Ken Williams that allegations of victimisation against MSF activist Monica Carmichael have 'no foundation whatsoever' (News, page 5, 11 November).

Why, then, is the trust resisting calls for an independent inquiry into the situation?

If there is nothing to hide, let an impartial scrutineer examine the situation and provide assurances to those of us with concerns.
