Birmingham NHS trust sacks staff after sexual harassment claims

A hospital trust has dismissed three members of staff following complaints of sexual harassment.

The sackings by University Hospitals Birmingham (UHB) NHS Trust were revealed at the launch of its sexual safety charter on Monday.

Sexual safety was one of the areas highlighted in a review of the trust's culture.

UHB said sexism, misogyny and sexual harassment would not be tolerated in the workplace.

The trust has been subject to three enquiries following a BBC investigation into its culture.

Prof Bewick said the trust had begun formal investigations and there was a widening of the scope of the enquiry to accommodate the sensitive nature of these concerns.
