Dr Henrietta Hughes

Dr Henrietta Hughes was appointed in July 2016 as the National Guardian, a key recommendation from the Francis Report.

She provides leadership and support to Freedom to Speak Up Guardians across England in arm’s-length bodies, NHS and Independent sector organisations to ensure that speaking up becomes business as usual.

The National Guardian’s Office undertakes and publishes case reviews when it appears that speaking up has not been handled according to best practice, providing challenge and learning to the healthcare system as a whole.

Previously a Medical Director at NHS England, Dr Hughes continues her clinical role weekly as a GP in central London.
