Ex-nurse's solo protest at every Priory Branch

A former nurse staged a one woman protest after being laid off from her job at The Priory.
MJ Maher, of Coulsdon, held her lone vigil on Friday outside the independent hospital in Priory Lane, Roehampton, handing out flyers.
The grandmother of four was employed at the Farmfield Hospital, in Gatwick, part of The Priory group, which cares for people with mental health problems, in December 2011.
Mrs Maher joined The Priory to raise funds for her own private psychotherapy practice, with a background as a mental health nurse and therapist since 1991.
She was put on a probation period for six months, but lost her job after failing to meet the requirements of a junior post nurse.
She plans to protest in front of every Priory Hospital.
A spokesman for the Priory in Roehampton said: "It appears a grievance at a different facility has led to this action."
