NHS England has provided the following response.

Where a whistleblower raises a concern with NHS England and provides contact details, it is anticipated that NHS England’s investigator will have contact with the whistleblower throughout any subsequent investigation into the concerns raised. This is done to ensure that the investigator manages the expectations of the individual who raised the concern and provide information on the action being taken.

Where NHS England employees raise concerns with NHS England internally under the ‘Voicing your concerns for staff (Whistleblowing) Policy and Procedure’, NHS England keeps those employees informed of the status of ongoing investigations.
