This open letter penned by four senior female NHS doctors outlines the issues caused by ongoing misogyny in the medical profession in Wales. They call for real change to ensure that the trainees and medical students of the future do not experience the same harassment, inappropriate comments and bullying from senior colleagues that each of them can recall during their careers.
"The four of us have risen to senior leadership positions in our respective specialties. We work in cancer, general practice, psychiatry and HIV medicine. And every single one of us can think of experiences from our own career that at the time we ignored, brushed off, pretended not to hear or not to see–but we saw, we heard, and we still remember."
