More trusts back Speak Out Safely campaign
Three more health service organisations have signed up to support our Speak Out Safely campaign.
We launched the campaign in March to make it safer for staff to raise legitimate concerns about patient safety.
John Wicks, Herefordshire CCG’s interim chief officer, explained why he was keen to support Speak Out Safely. He said: “Many staff working for the NHS and other healthcare providers have raised concerns in their organisations and have suffered personally or professionally because of it.
“This is why it’s increasingly important that all staff have the appropriate channels to feedback their concerns – and can work in an environment where everyone is free to say something isn’t right when they feel compelled to say so,” he added.
To date 25 acute trusts have pledged to support the campaign as have eight CCGs, 14 community trusts and four mental health trusts.
