Nursing agency and Derby community trust back Speak Out Safely
MPS Healthcare has become the first nursing agency to support our Speak Out Safely campaign.
MPS Healthcare specialises in recruiting nurse and healthcare professionals across Wales and is part of the HCL Workforce Solutions group.
Meanwhile, Derbyshire Community Health Services Trust has become the latest NHS organisation to pledge its support for the SOS campaign.
It is the third community trust to make the pledge, following Birmingham Community Healthcare Trust and Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Partnership Trust – all three are in the Midlands.
The SOS campaign launched earlier this year by Nursing Times aims to make it easier for staff to raise legitimate concerns about patient safety.
One of our key aims is for all trusts to pledge their support for the campaign and add specific protection for staff raising concerns to whistleblowing policies.
We also want the government to introduce a statutory duty of candour compelling staff and managers to be open about care failings, and ministers to review the Public Interest Disclosure Act to ensure it gives adequate protection to NHS staff.
