Call to ensure students can raise concerns

  • 1 Comment

This week we are redoubling our efforts to encourage NHS, academic and nursing organisations to support our Speak Out Safety campaign.

We are marking our second Speak Out Safely week with a series of special articles, blogs and social media activity designed specifically to increase awareness of the campaign and its aims in the education sector – visit to find out what is happening.

Launched by Nursing Times in March 2013, the campaign is now almost a year old and aims to make it easier for staff to raise legitimate concerns about patient safety.

One of our key aims is for all trusts and nursing organisations to publicly pledge their support for the campaign. More than 70 NHS trusts and commissioning groups have so far signed up.

The following 11 NHS organisations have signed up to support the campaign over the past two weeks, for which we thank them. They include seven hospital trusts, two mental health trusts, one community trust and a commissioning organisation.

  • 2gether Foundation Trust
  • Ipswich Hospital Trust
  • Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust
  • Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals Foundation Trust
  • Royal Free London Foundation Trust
  • Salford Royal Foundation Trust
  • Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital Trust
  • South Essex Partnership University Foundation Trust
  • South Tyneside Clinical Commissioning Group
  • Sussex Community Trust
  • Yeovil District Hospital Foundation Trust

    Keep it up NT - but as I've said before, isn't it about time we started being able to examine some actual policy changes which are supposed to implement this cultural shift ? Devil in the detail, as usual.
