The Role of the Freedom to Speak Up / Safer Working Guardian
The Trust uniquely employs one person to undertake both roles as both are novel and challenging. They have proactive, reactive, strategic and tactical elements and requires excellent partnership working. Above all, the person in the role needs to gain the trust of all staff working in the Trust.
The role of the Freedom to Speak Up Guardian is to:-
- Help protect patient safety and the quality of care
- Help improve the experience of workers
- Help promote learning and improvement
The Guardian of Safe Working role was issued in 2016 as part of the new Junior Doctors contract and has responsibility of ensuring doctors are properly paid for all their work and to make sure doctors aren’t working unsafe hours.
We have arranged sessions in York and Scarborough for our members to come and meet our Guardian and discuss further this very interesting role. The aim will be to share how it is delivered together with the benefits our staff receive and the aims we are striving to achieve.
