Speak Up Month gets underway

Speak up to me

A  national campaign aimed at raising awareness of speaking up begins tomorrow and continues throughout October.

Speak Up Month, led by the National Guardian's Office (NGO), aims to increase NHS organisations' commitment to fostering a strong speaking up culture and make Freedom to Speak Up (FTSU) guardians more visible.   

There is a FTSU guardian available in each NHS trust in England, who can support staff to speak up. Last year 11,958 cases were raised to FTSU guardians.

The NGO has produced a suite of resources that can be used to support Speak Up Month in your organisation. You can also follow the conversation throughout the month on Twitter, by searching #SpeakUptoMe. 

NHS Employer's raising concerns web pages can support organisations and managers to hold open conversations about raising concerns.
