For whistleblowers

The Independent National Whistleblowing Officer (INWO) is currently working with NHS stakeholders on the implementation of the National Whistleblowing Standards in advance of the launch of the INWO service.

The INWO will be able to receive and handle whistleblowing concerns from July 2020.

This web page will be updated with detailed information about how to raise whistleblowing concern and how to submit it to the INWO in due course.
