NHS surgeon, 52, who earned £125,000 a year is sacked after blowing the whistle on shocking hospital malpractice - and now works as an Uber driver.

  • Peter O'Keefe was sacked in 2015 by the Cardiff & Vale University Health Board.
  • It came three years after he raised questions about patient safety at the hospital.
  • The Health Board said he was fired after complaints that he bullied colleagues.
  • O'Keefe became an Uber driver and to his surprise - he's loving the new job.
