Speak up month

A national campaign aimed at raising awareness of speaking up begins on 1 October and continues throughout the month.

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.

Throughout October the NGO will be sharing their Alphabet of Speak Up – from Anonymity to Zero Tolerance. 26 days to explore the issues, the people, the values, the challenges – everything which goes into what FTSU means in health.

There is a FTSU guardian available in each NHS trust in England, who can support staff to speak up.

You can follow the conversation throughout the month on Twitter, by using #SpeakUpABC and take a look at the NGO’s website to find out more. 

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