Freedom to Speak Up Guardian
Southport and Formby Primary Care Network and member practices follow the guidance given by the National Guardians Office. We have Freedom to Speak Up Champions at each practice supported by a Freedom to Speak Up Guardian who covers the whole Primary Care Network.
Freedom to Speak Up Guardians support workers to speak up when they feel that they are unable to do so by other routes. They also work proactively to support their organisation to tackle barriers to speaking up. Their role is independent and impartial.
Any organisation can appoint a Freedom to Speak Up Guardian. They are appointed by the organisation that they support and abide by the guidance issued by the National Guardian’s Office.
All organisations that provide services under the NHS Standard Contract are required to appoint a Freedom to Speak Up Guardian. NHS primary care provider organisations are expected to. The National Guardian’s Office also expects health and care leadership organisations and regulators to appoint Freedom to Speak Up Guardians.
You can find more information about Freedom To Speak Up Guardians on the National Guardians Office website.
Read about Freedom to Speak Up Month, which is happening throughout October on the Southport and Formby Health website.
