New measures set to support whistleblowers in primary care

NHS England has taken significant steps to make it easier for primary care staff to raise their concerns so that action can be taken and improvements made.

Firstly new whistleblowing guidance has been drawn up which will now be consulted on for the next five weeks.  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.
