Solution Sheet | NHS Speak Up Solution
Within the NHS, ability to speak up has a key part to play in safeguarding patients and staff, highlighting unethical behaviour and allowing Trusts to act on employee concerns. That’s why the NHS has launched its first national policy on whistleblowing. Every Trust needs to adopt the policy by March 2017, with systems in place that support staff, ensure anonymity and turn concerns into action – fast.
Yet existing whistleblowing methods rely on paper, email and telephone, making them complex to manage while it is difficult to preserve confidentiality or progress concerns quickly.
The Questback NHS Speak Up Solution specifically addresses the needs of Trusts and other healthcare organisations:
- Web-based solution, easily accessible by staff 24/7
- Guaranteed anonymity and security through powerful encryption
- Simple to use by staff – and straightforward to manage for the Trust
