Whistleblowing Helpline (Bridging the Gap Campaign)

Summary

Although 89% of staff in the NHS believe they know about whistleblowing, only 73% of staff would feel safe when speaking-up. Hundreds of thousands of voices may effectively be held silent.

“Not only is this an indicator of poor morale and a less than progressive culture, but a missed opportunity to gain feedback, make service improvements and reduce potential risks”.

The “Bridging the Gap” campaign aims to raise awareness about whistleblowing and the benefits of speaking up.
