I am pleased to announce that today the Independent Review will be launching the Staff Voices initiative.
In addition to anonymised accounts from those affected by care in the Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, the experiences and concerns of staff, both past and present, are absolutely central to our Independent Review.
That is why today, I am asking any member of staff who worked within or close to Maternity services at NUH that has concerns to come forward and speak to our Review team. Your confidentiality will be respected throughout this process. What you tell us will be kept confidential unless you were to share with us very serious concerns about patient safety or other very significant issues, which would of course have to be escalated appropriately.
I know that I speak on behalf of all members of my team, when I say that our staff voices initiative will be both professional, and most importantly, a confidential space, in which you can come forward and tell us about any concerns you have. When you engage with my team you will be speaking to review team members who can fully appreciate every aspect of your story, and are able to understand anything you share with them. So please, if you have information you wish to share, please submit a questionnaire, and we will get in contact with you in the near future.
Within the Staff Voices initiative there is an opportunity to meet (virtually) with members of the Independent Maternity Review team. We hope to be able to speak with a number of current and former staff.
