Responding to the first national whistleblowing policy, Danny Mortimer, Chief Executive, NHS Employers said:
"Employers are committed to ensuring that every member of staff feel able to raise any concerns and know that appropriate action will be taken. We know a lot of work has gone into reviewing and improving policies and practice and this policy will help employers with the work they are doing.
“We are also pleased to see that employers can incorporate their local processes into this national standard policy - employers will now want to review the documentation in partnership with their local staff representatives and agree the best way to engage and communicate with staff.”
