The Health, Safety and Wellbeing Partnership Group (HSWPG) has created an infographic to show the impact of bullying and harassment in the NHS, and what can be done by organisations and individuals to tackle it.
The infographic depicts the extent of bullying and harassment within healthcare:
- 20 per cent of all NHS staff report they have been bullied by other staff
- 29.9 per cent of all NHS staff indicated experience of psychological distress due to bullying behaviours
- 80 per cent of staff believe the state of their health affects patient care.
