NHS Employers has launched a new initiative to raise awareness about bullying in the NHS and provide advice on what action should be taken to deal with it.

The campaign forms part of an ongoing programme by NHS Employers on bullying and harassment, and packs will be sent to every NHS trust in England containing awareness posters, leaflets and wristbands.

NHS Employers head of workplace health Julian Topping said: ‘Bullying can ruin lives and is a major course of stress and related illnesses. We have already been working with trusts to identify bullying behaviour and to prevent it with clear zero tolerance bullying and harassment statements and frameworks for dealing with incidents among their staff. Our new campaign is targeted at staff and their managers to help them recognise bullying and know what to do about it.’

NHS Employers shall be supporting the National Ban Bullying at Work Day on 7 November of this year.
