Supporting and Escalating Concerns: Pathway for Learners

Health Education England South West (HEE SW) believes that it is important that Healthcare Learners are able to raise and where appropriate escalate concerns.  The flow chart below highlights the ways in which you can do this.  You are encouraged to follow the appropriate pathway, starting with reporting the concern within your clinical learning environment in the first instance.  For further information please contact the Quality Team at EscalatingConcerns.SW@hee.nhs.uk. 

Please note: This process is not intended to replace local Serious Incident reporting.
