Tackling bullying and harassment in the NHS - new resources launched

Tackling bullying and harrassment

16 / 6 / 2016 Midnight

The Health, Safety and Wellbeing Partnership Group (HSWPG) has launched new resources and an infographic to support NHS organisations to develop cultures where staff are free from the fear of intimidating behaviour.  

The partnership group recognises that bullying can have a detrimental effect on an individual’s overall health and wellbeing. The new resources include a webpage containing practical tools, evidence and support for tackling bullying, and an infographic that shows the impact of bullying and harassment in the NHS. 

The infographic shows: 
  • 20 per cent of all NHS staff report they have been bullied by other staff
  • 29.9 per cent of all NHS staff have indicated experience of psychological distress due to bullying behaviours
  • 80 per cent of staff believe the state of their health affects patient care. 
Take a more proactive stance against bullying. Find more information on the bullying in healthcare webpages or download the bullying in the NHS infographic.
