Major trust faces bullying concerns from hundreds of senior doctors

Concerns over bullying and discrimination have been raised in a survey of hundreds of doctors at a major hospital trust, HSJ  can reveal.

University Hospitals of North Midlands Trust’s medical staff committee carried out a survey of its doctors earlier this year, after bullying concerns were raised by members of the British Association of Physicians of Indian Origin at the trust.

A summary of the survey findings, published in a newsletter sent to all doctors at the trust last week and seen by HSJ, showed more than two-thirds of the 348 respondents claimed to have experienced bullying, harassment or victimisation at work. Nearly 80% said they had witnessed bullying or harassment, while 50 per cent of respondents said the bullying and harassment was due to race or ethnicity.

Fifty-five per cent of those answering the survey also said they had not reported concerns as they had “no confidence in the investigative process within the organisation”.
