East London Foundation Trust has become the latest provider to pledge its staff can speak out safely by backing Nursing Times’ campaign.
The trust provides mental health and community services to a population of almost one million over four London boroughs.
It is the third mental health provider and the second trust in the capital to back the Speak out Safely campaign.
In a statement director of nursing Jonathan Warren said it was “vital” to the delivery of high quality care that staff knew they could raise concerns at any time.
He added: “We are working hard to ensure we have a listening and learning culture in the trust where these conversations happen as part of our day to day working practice.
“We want our staff to know it is ok to talk to their colleagues and managers about issues as this is crucial to help us improve the care we deliver to patients and maintain high standards.”
