Statement of Concern

What is the Statement of Concern?

The Statement of Concern template can be used by you to email the senior decision-maker/manager on duty in your service to raise an issue of concern relating to safe standards of practice or the conditions within the workplace. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to raise your concerns.

Concerns you raise should be entered on the risk register by management, and you are entitled to seek feedback on the concerns you raise.

While it can appear repetitious or futile to continually raise issues of concern, it is professionally important both in terms of your own professional registration and for patient safety that concerns that exist are consistently raised, and that there is a record of raising them.

Also, it is a professional duty under the NMBI Code of Professional Conduct and Ethics Principle 2 to report safety concerns about the healthcare environment.
