The NHSScotland Confidential Alert Line was initially launched as a pilot on 2 April 2013. This document provides Public Concern at Work's final evaluation of the Pilot.

Executive Summary

The NHSScotland Confidential Alert Line service is run by Public Concern at Work, an independent whistleblowing charity. It provides a safe place where staff, who feel that they may be victimised as a result of whistleblowing, can raise concerns about patient safety and malpractice. It also provides a route, where appropriate, where concerns can be passed to the health board or appropriate regulator on the callers behalf.

Public Concern at Work undertook a six month interim and final evaluation of the pilot.
