What is Freedom to Speak Up?

Speaking Up is about raising concerns to do with anything that you believe may be getting in the way of providing safe and good quality care, or that may be impacting the working life of you or your colleagues.

Speaking Up should be encouraged in all organisations as it enables the organisation to learn lessons and continually improve the service they provide. Speaking Up might take the form of speaking to your manager or a colleague about something you have noticed or experienced, or it might be a suggestion for a way that something could be improved. Speaking up about any concern you have at work is really important. In fact, it is vital because it will help keep patients and staff safe and help improve services.
