Whistleblowing (Public Interest Disclosure)


The University is committed to high standards of openness, probity, and accountability and has put a Whistleblowing Policy and Procedure in place to promote that culture. The Whistleblowing Policy and Procedure applies to matters relating to the investigation and, where appropriate, action in respect of 'whistleblowing' or ‘public interest disclosures’. The Policy sets out the procedure to make a whistleblowing disclosure and how this will be considered, as well as the legal protections afforded to complainants under the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998. 

The Board of Governors has designated the Audit Committee as the body which will oversee the proper conduct of investigations of whistleblowing disclosures and to ensure that the provisions of the Policy are properly applied. The Audit Committee has appointed the University Secretary as the Designated Officer for this Procedure.

Protect (formerly Public Concern at Work) are leading experts in whistleblowing and can provide independent, confidential support and guidance for individuals on matters relating to whistleblowing disclosures.
