HEE extension of whistleblowing protection (August 2016). The attached document explains what the extended whistleblowing protection means for HEE's postgraduate medical and dental trainees. This is a new legal route with some technical aspects, but this short summary aims to give you the main points.
The HEE KSS policy on raising concerns (whistleblowing) is available to download from the right hand side of this page.
The HEE SL policy is available here.
A presentation for foundation doctors relating to raising concerns at work/whistleblowing is available here.
The easiest way to raise a concern about a doctor is through the GMC’s online complaint form at www.gmc-uk.org/patientshelp. Further information can be found on our website at www.gmc-uk.org/concerns.
Some whistleblowers may be more comfortable raising a concern via the GMC confidential helpline. The helpline number is 0161 923 6399. Lines are open 9 am–5 pm, from Monday to Friday.
The GMC provides a dedicated support service for people who have raised concerns about a doctor’s fitness to practise. Call 0161 954 1797 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
