Right Arrow Staff experience at the Trust - response to Liverpool Echo
17 December 2018 at 14:37

Silas Nicholls, Chief Executive, said: “Since becoming Chief Executive in April, both I and the Executive Team have made it clear we take all accusations of bullying and harassment extremely seriously. There is no room for bullying in the Trust. It will not be tolerated and we will do what it takes to address it.

“I am very sorry the individuals who have spoken to the Liverpool Echo haven’t felt confident to raise their concerns with the Trust. I would urge them to come forward either directly or in confidence to our independent Freedom to Speak Up Guardian Martin Abrams.

“Their concerns, and those of any other colleagues who feel the need to speak up, will be fully investigated and appropriate action taken where necessary.”

All staff have a responsibility to speak up where they have a concern which may affect patient care or have implications for the welfare of colleagues. The Trust published a video this month as part of work to help raise awareness that speaking up should be business as usual for all staff.
