    Speaking at a recent summit the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has announced a new set of measured aimed to end the 'cover up culture' in the NHS.

    Plans include legal safe spaces for staff who are raising concerns and credit given to NHS staff who are open about mistakes.

    It aims to reduce the 150 avoidable deaths that occur across the NHS each week and to change the culture from one of blame to one of learning.

    What are your thoughts on this? Do you think these measures will encourage more people to raise concerns? will it make a difference to patient safety or experience?
