NHS Professionals offer bursaries to Speaking Out Summit

To show our support of the debate on whistleblowing, NHS Professionals will award bursaries to 10 of our flexible worker staff, allowing you access to the Speaking Out Summit (SOS) on 8th May hosted by nhsManagers.net.

The full day event will include workshop sessions delivered by experts in whistleblowing law, conflict resolution, organisational and leadership dynamics and enquiry management. The SOS aims to create and promote best practice guidance for anyone involved in whistleblowing and speaking out, in any capacity, as well as providing an intelligent and safe forum for discussion and debate.

Confirmed conference speakers will include Sir Robert Naylor, chief executive of UCLH; GP and comedian Phil Hammond, who was a whistleblower at the Bristol baby hospital; head of NHS Employers Dean Royles, and several other whistleblowers and academics in organisational behaviour.

We are very keen to support what we believe is a very important event on an issue affecting our staff and the patients in your care.

If you are a member of NHSP:Bank, and would like to apply for one of the 10 bursaries to attend the Speaking Out Summit on 8th May, please tell us what you current job title is and why you are interested in the subject in no more than 100 words. Please send all applications to hannah.slater@salixconsulting.com with ‘Bank Staff Bursaries’ in the subject line before Friday 2nd May.
