Whistleblowing Guidance

In response to Sir Robert Francis’ Freedom to Speak Up, and his recommendation to review primary care separately, NHS England has published specific guidance for colleagues in general practice, opticians, community pharmacies and dental practices. This follows a consultation with staff working in primary care.

On 1 April 2016, NHS England became a ‘prescribed person’, which means primary care staff can raise concerns about patient safety or inappropriate behaviour directly with NHS England.

The guidance sets out; who can raise a concern, the process for raising a concern, how the concern will be investigated and what will be done with the findings of the investigation. 

Please find below the links to the whistleblowing guidance and how to raise concerns mentioned in the above message.
