Do you feel safe to speak up?

Recommended Posts

Prerana Issar, Chief People Officer of NHS England and NHS Improvement recently retweeted a message from NHS England and NHS Improvement that "It's so important (for NHS staff) to feel able to speak up about anything which gets in the way of patient care and their own wellbeing".

But we still have a long way to go and much needs to change before NHS staff can be sure that it is safe for them to speak up, as highlighted in a blog published on the hub today from our topic lead, Hugh Wilkins: The right – and duty – of NHS staff to speak up

What do you think? Are you a staff member who has spoken up? What was your experience? We'd love to hear your thoughts.

The impact of COVID-19 has seen an increase in whistleblowing amongst key-workers in hospital and care settings. There is a duty to protect whistleblowers who speak out and challenge their employers. Encouraging the right for staff to speak out without fear of repercussion ensures that proactive measures are taken to protect the lives of NHS and care workers.
