Parliamentary Questions #1
In April, Lord Wills posed the question "What steps are the government taking to remind NHS trusts of their responsibilities to whistleblowers".
The impact of Covid19 has seen an increase in whistleblowing amongst key-workers in hospital and care settings. There is a duty to protect whistleblowers who speak out and challenge their employers. Encouraging the right for staff to speak out without fear of repercussion ensures that proactive measures are taken to protect the lives of NHS and care workers.
