With so many changes in the NHS, care provision can be marginalised. The pressure from the Government to cut down on the costs of patient care provision may make professionals anxious and apprehensive about the care they give. Health care professionals increasingly worry about patient care and safety as well as the health and safety of the environment they work in. This session takes you through the step by step process of raising any concerns you may have. This session will help you understand:
• What raising concerns mean?
• The types of concerns
• Your duty to raise concerns
• How to raise concerns
• Your Employers duty to acknowledge, investigate and respond
• How to raise concerns formally
• What happens next?
• The whistle blowing process
