Report a concern if you are a member of staff

You can contact us if you want to raise a concern about the health or social care service you work for (sometimes called 'whistleblowing').

Confidentiality

The information you give us will be dealt with in confidence, and you can raise concerns anonymously.

Before contacting us, you may want to:

  • speak to your line manager or a senior member of staff about your concerns.
  • read your employer's whistleblowing policy which will give you information on what to do next.

If you feel like you can't talk to someone in your organisation, read our quick guide to whistleblowing or guidance for workers which give helpful advice on speaking out about poor care and what protection you will have from the law.

We have also produced a document explaining to providers of services why they should have a whistleblowing policy and the benefits of encouraging workers to raise concerns.
