Country of origin: UK

The government has published an update on progress in the NHS since the Francis Inquiry, and announced new measures to enable staff to raise concerns about care confidently. ‘Culture change in the NHS’ sets out how the system has been working toward safer, more open and compassionate care. The Government has also accepted in principle the recommendations from Sir Robert Francis’s Freedom to Speak Up review. Proposed legislation will help protect whistle blowers who are applying for NHS jobs from discrimination by prospective employers.
