Speak out safely

We’ve signed up to show our support for the Speak Out Safely campaign.

The Dudley Group has joined the Nursing Times Speak Out Safely campaign to reinforce the message to our staff that they can safely and confidently raise concerns about patient care and safety.

We are committed to reassuring our staff that any concerns they raise will be addressed in an open and transparent way. Our staff should not be afraid to speak up if they have worries about standards of care within our Trust.

“We are, of course, committed to providing the best possible care to every single patient we treat and being able to speak up when our care falls short is a big part of that commitment. It’s so important to me that every single Dudley Group employee knows that they can raise any concerns they may have without fear of reprisal and with the confidence that their worries will be listened to. Making our pledge to the Speak Out Safely campaign is the ideal opportunity for us to make public the commitment we have to making this happen in our Trust.”

Our pledge

This trust supports the Nursing Times Speak Out Safely campaign. This means we want every member of our staff to feel able to raise concerns about wrongdoing or poor practice when they see it and confident that their concerns will be addressed in a constructive way.

We promise that where staff identify a genuine patient safety concern, we will support them, fully investigate and, if appropriate, act on their concern. We will also give them feedback about how we have responded to the issue they have raised, as soon as possible.

Whether you are a permanent employee, an agency or temporary staff member, or a volunteer, please speak up when you feel something is wrong. We want you to be able to Speak Out Safely. Click here for more details on our pledge.
