Welcome to the June edition of the HPMA membership newsletter.
The National Guardian's Office is running a series of eight workshops in Leeds, Birmingham, London, Manchester and Bristol for Freedom to Speak Up (FTSU) Guardians, designed to help them understand more about the role and expectations.
These workshops are designed to support Freedom to Speak Up Guardians who have been appointed in NHS Trusts or Foundation Trusts.
When and how to book
Guardians can book their place on one of the workshops on Eventbrite. Please note that spaces are limited and where trusts have more than one designated guardian in place, only one or two will be able to attend.
