What is speaking up?

Speaking up is about anything that gets in the way of providing good care.Screenshot 2021-09-29 at 14.25.44.png

When things go wrong, we need to make sure that lessons are learnt and things are improved. If we think something might go wrong, it’s important that we all feel able to speak up so that potential harm is prevented.

Even when things are good, but could be even better, we should feel able to say something and should expect that our suggestion is listened to and used as an opportunity for improvement.

Speaking up is about all of these things
