Speak Out Safely Campaign
10 January 2014

Ipswich Hospital NHS trust wholeheartedly supports the Nursing Times Speak Out Safely campaign. We want any staff member who has a concern to raise this within the organisation at the earliest opportunity.

Providing high quality, safe, compassionate care to patients is our foremost priority. Our staff are often best placed to identify where care may be falling below the standard our patients deserve and should expect. We want every member of our staff to feel able to raise concerns with their manager, or any member of the leadership team, including the chief executive and executive directors. Everyone in the organisation should feel able to highlight wrongdoing or poor practice when they see it and be confident that their concerns will be addressed in a supportive way.

We pledge that where staff identify a concern, they will not be treated with prejudice and they will not suffer any set back to their career. We will fully support staff with a thorough investigation and, if appropriate, act on their concern. We will also give staff feedback about how we have responded to the issue they have raised, as soon as possible.

It is not disloyal to colleagues to raise concerns; it is a duty to our patients.

We want you to be able to Speak Out Safely.
