Our Freedom to Speak Up (FTSU) Guardian was scheduled to present at the National Guardian’s Office Regional Conference today. Due to the Covid crisis, it took place via webinar, as it was felt important that GP Practice staff know they are fully supported when it comes to reporting concerns about patient care and the safety of patients and colleagues.
Following the introduction of the Guardian roles in Primary Care in 2017, it struck us that General Practice is unique in how the role can be provided. As small organisations it is not practical for practices to have an individual person, independent of management to represent staff. What is required is a cost effective service deployed with an understanding of the uniqueness and sensitivities of Primary Care.
Howbeck is now delivering a FTSU service to over 100 of our clients inc GP Practices, PCNs and Feds. We support them to embed the appropriate policies and promote the service to make it visible to staff, which is critical for success.
*We are now offering this service to all*
Costs are based on list size with group discounts available for PCNs and Federations
