Freedom to speak up, whistleblowing or raising concerns are all the same thing.

We want to support a culture of learning, openness and transparency throughout our whole organisation. The aim of having borough Freedom To Speak Up (FTSU) Guardians is to provide a team of people who are trained to listen to any concerns you may have.

Should colleagues have a concern that they wish to raise, then they can contact either their local borough FTSU Guardian or any one of the other members of the team, should they prefer. We keep information confidential unless colleagues want us to take further action. We will gather themes, however, from the issues raised with the FTSU Guardians team to help the ICB make improvements for all our people and staff.

Contacting FTSU Guardians

When contacting a Guardian via email, please put “FTSU” in the subject line.
