Workplace incivility is low level and often not intended to cause harm. It can come from managers, colleagues and patients.
Examples might include:
- eye rolling
- abrupt emails
- being interrupted, excluded or ignored
- hostile looks
- refusing to assist a colleague
- publicly criticising a colleague.
See how incivility at work affects NHS staff and how that can impact negatively on patient safety. In this short film, join the staff of Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust on their journey as they reflect on the real-life effects of both incivility and active kindness.
