Reported a bad practice but not happy with the outcome. What can I do?

I have a question regarding bad practice I have witnessed. I have reported my concerns to management; however I am not satisfied with the outcome. Where can I go with this?

This is a serious issue that cannot be ignored. If you are a member of a registered body such NMC, GDC or GMC, you have a duty to report this based on your code of conduct. If this has been raised with management and there are others within that management structure such as a partner or principle, you should again raise your concerns with them.

If you remain dissatisfied with any action or inaction, your next step is to see if you have a whistleblowing procedure and follow that. If you remain concerned or the issue is extremely serious to cause patient safety concerns, you can report this by whistleblowing to ensure patients remain safe. You can do this to the CQC via this link
