National guidelines for freedom to speak up training published

Hospital staff

The National Guardian's Office has published national guidelines for Freedom to Speak Up (FTSU) training.

The guidelines, designed to be used by individuals or organisations commissioning or delivering FTSU training, aim to improve the quality, clarity and consistency of speaking up training across the health sector in England. The guidance comes in three parts and covers:

  • core training for all workers
  • line and middle manager training
  • senior leaders training.

Employers are encouraged to bring existing training in line with these guidelines. More information and the national guidelines, can be found on the National Guardian's Office's website.
