Freedom To Speak Up Guardian

What speaking up is 

It's speaking up about anything that: gets in the way of Health and Community Services (HCS) staff doing their job, affects patient care, or employee wellbeing. HCS staff can Speak Up about anything that may be worrying them or if they have ideas for improvements. 

Any member of HCS staff can Speak Up, and it's completely confidential. 

The Freedom to Speak Up Guardian's commitment staff

It isn't easy to Speak Up and the Freedom to Speak Up Guardian recognises this. They want to create a place where HCS staff can discuss their concerns.

The Freedom to Speak Up Guardian promises to honour the courage it takes to Speak up and to support HCS staff in a completely independent, impartial, and confidential capacity.  

If a member of HCS staff is unsure about a particular concern, they can take it to the Freedom to Speak Up Guardian and look at it together. Then if that staff member decides they would like their concern to be investigated, the Freedom to Speak Up Guardian can take this forward and keep staff member informed of the progress. 

There's so much to; learn about, develop, and improve across HCS, and Speaking Up ensures quality patient care and improved colleague experiences.
