Case Study

King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust faced common challenges in managing its new Freedom to Speak Up (FTSU) initiative and its related processes. Guardians relied on manual processes, primarily using widely available tools like Excel spreadsheets, to collect and analyse data related to staff concerns and whistleblowing incidents. However, this approach had several limitations, including data security concerns, time-consuming processes, and difficulties in generating detailed analytics.

The use of Excel spreadsheets posed various challenges for King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. These Excel files were vulnerable to corruption and loss of data, raising concerns about confidentiality and accuracy. Managing increasing case numbers became increasingly time-consuming, with guardians struggling to maintain continuity and ensure accurate data entry.

Excel lacked robust reporting capabilities, making it difficult to generate detailed analytics and identify trends or barriers to speaking up. Guardian offices emphasised the importance of triangulating data from multiple sources, but Excel's limitations hindered the seamless integration and analysis of disparate data sets.

"[…Triangulation is] something that we're really, really passionate about, and something that the Guardians office keep telling us all that we need to triangulate, but that's not very easy when you're working off of an Excel spreadsheet."
