Speak Out Safely - protecting staff who raise concerns

  • Comment

Our Speak Out Safely (SOS) campaign aims to encourage NHS organisations and independent healthcare providers to develop cultures that are honest and transparent, to actively encourage staff to raise the alarm when they see poor practice, and to protect them when they do so.

We want:

  1. The government to introduce a statutory duty of candour compelling health professionals and managers to be open about care failings
  2. Trusts to sign up to our campaign, making a public commitment to supporting staff who raise concerns
  3. The government to undertake a wholesale review of the Public Interest Disclosure Act, to ensure whistleblowers who take concerns outside their organisation if they are not taken seriously internally are fully protected.
