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.
