Abstract

In their valuable discussion of whistleblowing in healthcare organisations Mannion and Davies highlight the importance of organisational culture in influencing whether people raise concerns, and whether these concerns are listened to and acted upon. The role of leadership in shaping organisational culture is well established and in this commentary we will examine the influence of leaders in creating cultures of silence or cultures of voice.
