NHS Employers chief executive Danny Mortimer said:
“We are pleased that the Health Select Committee noted improvements in culture and confidence amongst staff who raise concerns as well as recognising that there is still more to be done. Like the Health Select Committee, we look forward the publication of the report of the Freedom to Speak Up review led by Sir Robert Francis.
“Employers recognise that properly listening and responding to complaints and concerns is a vital part of ensuring the safe care of patients.”
