New freedom to speak up guardian hub


06 / 11 / 2015 8.48am

Our guardian hub brings together the local activity and national developments taking place across the country to improve the system wide culture around raising concerns.

Designed for HR, senior managers and those with a responsibility for raising concerns in NHS organisations, it contains an interactive map of local freedom to speak up guardians, resources, information on the national guardian role and where to find out more information. It also links to shared learning examples we have developed with organisations including our latest the guardian team: working together to champion raising concerns

Background to freedom to speak up guardians 

Following the Sir Robert Francis Freedom to Speak Up report in February 2015 and the subsequent Department of Health Learning not blaming report published in July 2015, employers have been tasked with implementing a set of principles and actions to ensure safe, effective, respectful and compassionate care. 

One of the recommendations is for each NHS organisation to appoint a freedom to speak up guardian. In the absence of any national guidance which is expected in the next few months, some employers have already begun to put their guardian services in place. We are working closely with employers and guardians to capture early learning.
