Misneach: Louise Bayliss, 9.30pm, TG4

In December 2011, Louise Bayliss (below), a single mother of two from Dublin, was working as an advocate for patients at various psychiatric hospitals around Dublin.

For her, this position with Irish Advocacy Network was a career she had dreamed of, having just completed a Masters in Equality Studies in UCD.

Just before Christmas, Louise visited St Brendan’s Hospital, Grangegorman, and discovered patients were being moved to the 'locked unit’ for the Christmas period due to staffing issues.

After doing all she could within her position to change this decision, she became a whistleblower.

The female patients were moved and she was dismissed, reinstated on a training contract, and never again set foot in a psychiatric hospital.
