Since 2017, prescribed bodies are legally required to publish an annual report on the whistleblowing disclosures made by workers. This year, the UK healthcare professional regulators compiled a joint report highlighting a collaborative approach to addressing issues raised.
The purpose of the report is to raise confidence among whistleblowers that their disclosures are treated seriously and confidentially. It is also designed to increase transparency across the sector regarding the way in which disclosures are dealt with.
The report details the number of disclosures received by each regulator, and the specific action taken in relation to each one.
