Please note that if you have been appointed to fulfil a Freedom to Speak Up Guardian role, you will need to undertake a Freedom to Speak Up Guardian Introductory Session.  If this is something you would like to arrange please contact

You may also be interested in  Freedom to Speak Up e-learning, developed in association with Health Education England and freely available for anyone who works in healthcare. ‘Speak Up, Listen Up, Follow Up’ is divided into three modules, it helps learners understand the vital role they can play in a healthy speaking up culture which protects patient safety and enhances worker experience.

Speak Up: Core Training for all Workers , covers what speaking up is and why it matters. It will help you understand how you can do this and what to expect. Listen Up – for managers at all levels, focuses on listening and understanding the barriers to speaking up.  A final module, Follow Up, for senior leaders – including executive and Non-Executive Directors, lay members and governors – will be launched later this year.

You do not have to work for an NHS organisation to access this training, it is available to anybody who would like to register.

Contact e-LfH if your organisation would like to embed this within your own Learning Management System (LMS)
