Whistleblowing is the act of reporting concerns about malpractice, wrongdoing or fraud.  Within the NHS and social care sector, these issues have the potential to undermine public confidence in these vital services and threaten patient safety.  If you are working in this sector but don’t know what to do, or who to turn to about your concerns, we are the leading source of signposting, advice and guidance.

Whether you are an employee, worker, employer or professional body/organisation, you can call our free whistleblowing helpline, send us an email  or complete the online form safe in the knowledge everything you tell us is strictly confidential and anonymous.  We offer legally compliant, unbiased support and guidance to ensure you can act in accordance with your values.  This ensures you fully understand your options and legal rights specific to your employment situation.
