Whistleblowing is the reporting of wrongdoing. This includes criminal offences (e.g. fraud), threats to somebody's health and safety, miscarriages of justice, or if the organisation is breaking the law.
Situations such as workplace bullying or harassment are not covered under whistleblowing law. Instead, see our Bullying and Harassment awareness course.
Whistleblowing in health and social care also refers to the reporting of malpractice, wrongdoing or illegal actions.
In care, concerns for the safety of patients and others who use healthcare services, including staff, are often the reason for a whistleblower to make a complaint.
Whistleblowers should make disclosures to a 'prescribed body', such as the Care Quality Commission (CQC), in the event that their own employer's whistleblower policy has not dealt with the complaint.
