Speak out Safely logo
The School supports the Nursing Times Speak Out Safely campaign. We want all staff and students to feel able to raise concerns about wrongdoing or poor practice and to be confident these will be addressed in a constructive way. We promise that where staff or students identify a genuine patient safety issue, we will support them, help them to ensure their concern is fully investigated and, if appropriate, act on their concern. We will also give feedback about how service providers have responded to the issue they have raised, as soon as possible. Read LSBU's Speak out Safely policy (PDF File 605 KB).
