This training is for all staff who work on behalf of the NHS in Scotland, including students, contractors and volunteers. In these modules you will learn about the National Whistleblowing Standards (the Standards) and the role of the Independent National Whistleblowing Officer (INWO).

The Standards come into force on 1 April 2021 and will be a step change in how whistleblowing concerns are dealt with in the NHS. They describe how organisations must provide protection and support for people who speak up about harm or wrong doing.

The modules have been provided by the INWO and are set out in 2 different learning programmes.

  • one for staff who need an overview of the Standards
  • the other for managers and people who receive concerns from other staff in their day-to-day work
