Freedom to speak up in primary care: guidance to primary care providers on supporting whistleblowing in the NHS | NHS England

kick-off-879382_1280This guidance aims to make it easier for all staff providing NHS primary care services to raise their concerns so that action can be taken and improvements made.

It details the principles and actions to apply in primary care when raising concerns about the delivery of primary care services to patients.

The guidance comes after Sir Robert Francis recommended that the principles outlined in his Freedom to Speak Up report be adapted for primary care, where smaller work settings can present challenges around anonymity and conflicts with employers.
