Speak Out Safely


The Faculty of Health and Life Sciences supports the Nursing Times Speak Out Safely campaign.

This means we want every member of our staff and students to feel able to raise concerns about wrongdoing or poor practice when they see it and confident that their concerns will be addressed in a constructive way.

We promise that where staff or students identify a genuine patient safety concern, we will support them, help them to ensure their concern is fully investigated and, if appropriate, act on their concern. We will also give them feedback about how service providers have responded to the issue they have raised, as soon as possible.

Whether you are a staff member, or a student, please speak up when you feel something is
wrong. We want you to be able to Speak Out Safely.

The faculty's own guidelines for raising and escalating concerns about practice (including whistleblowing) are available here (PDF).
