For NHS organisations

NHS organisations will be required to follow the National Whistleblowing Principles and Standards. The Standards are being shared in advance of the start of the INWO service 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 training, guidance and resources offer supporting information on handling concerns.
