Disheartening to see many doctors suffering from bullying, says NHS Employers in response to BMA report

Paul Wallace

Responding to the BMA report, Bullying and harassment: how to address it and create a supportive and inclusive culture, Paul Wallace, director of employment relations and reward at NHS Employers, said: 

“It is disheartening to see that so many UK doctors suffer from bullying, undermining and harassment. This kind of behaviour in the NHS or any workplace is completely unacceptable, and we will continue to work with employers to make sure doctors feel supported to speak up, if they or their colleagues face mistreatment at work. 

“Our hardworking colleagues do great work under extreme pressure, and it is understandable that it may affect their mood, but it is not fair that this pressure should be compounded by bad behaviour. It is paramount that all NHS organisations, national and local, address and reduce bullying and create a supportive environment for doctors and all staff. We are glad to see the BMA is offering solutions in this report.”
