Report reveals the impact of Freedom to Speak Up

A new report published by the National Guardian’s Office reveals that the perception of the speaking up culture in health is improving.

An annual survey, conducted by the National Guardian’s Office, asked Freedom to Speak Up Guardians, and those in a supporting role, about how speaking up is being implemented in their organisation. The results reveal details about the network’s demographics and their perceptions of the impact of their role.

Headlines from the survey include a measure of whether those in speaking up roles think their work is making a difference, with 76 per cent agreeing or strongly agreeing – compared to 68 per cent last year. They also reported that awareness of the guardian role is improving.

“It’s really important we listen to guardians in order to understand the impact Freedom to Speak Up is making,” said Dr Henrietta Hughes OBE, National Guardian for the NHS. “The report we are publishing today will help organisations better understand how to work with their guardians to improve their speaking up cultures.”
