We are pledging our support for the Nursing Times Speak Out Safely campaign Published on: 17 October 2013 This means we want every member of our staff to feel able to raise concerns about wrongdoing or poor practice when they see it and confident that their concerns will be addressed in a constructive way. We promise that where staff identify a genuine patient safety concern, we will support them, fully investigate and, if appropriate, act on their concern. We will also give them feedback about how we have responded to the issue they have raised, as soon as possible. Louise Ashley, our chief nurse and director of quality said: "We are very proud to be supporting this excellent campaign that can only help ensure the best of care for our patients. I am appealing to all of our staff - whether a permanent employee, an agency or temporary staff member, or a volunteer, please speak up when you feel something is wrong. We want you to be able to Speak Out Safely". Click here for more details about the campaign on the Nursing Times website.
