Raising concerns

Raising concerns

The RCM has produced guidance to support midwives, student midwives and maternity support workers if they have concerns at work.

Midwives also have a professional duty under The Code: professional standards of practice and behaviour for nurses and midwives (2015)

The NMC have recently published guidance entitled Raising Concerns, Guidance for nurses and midwives (2013 updated in 2015).

Advice on raising a concern can also be sought from your RCM Steward, Regional/National Officer or Public Concern at Work (PCaW)

 

Public Concern at Work is an independent charity that provides free confidential advice to workers who witness wrongdoing or malpractice in the workplace. Established in 1993 it has since advised over 19,000 clients across all sectors. The health and care sectors, account for a third of the calls received. They are a legal advice centre so all discussions are in complete confidence and come under the auspices of legal professional privilege.
