January 2020: The following information is shared to prepare for implementation in summer 2020

For NHS organisations

From July 2020 NHS organisations are required to follow the National Whistleblowing Principles and Standards. The Standards are being shared in advance of July for information and to help NHS organisations to prepare for implementation.

The Principles and Standards explain what is expected of NHS organisations and contractors about their handling of whistleblowing concerns.

The sector information includes specific guidance for primary care, health and social care partnerships, students and volunteers.

Our guidance and resources offer supporting information on handling concerns.
