    Doctors in Wales have faced bullying and disciplinary action for raising concerns over working conditions and safety, a union leader has said. Dr Phil Banfield, of BMA Wales, said doctors who complained about work, both before and during the Covid pandemic, were seen as "troublemakers". He said there are worries bullying among staff will get worse as longer post-Covid waiting lists are tackled. The Welsh government said bullying of NHS staff was "entirely unacceptable". Dr Banfield, who is chairman of the BMA Welsh consultants' committee, said staff have faced the prospect

    NHS whistleblowers have required counselling and medication and a quarter would not raise concerns again due to the stress and lack of support, a report found. A review of existing policy at NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde found “concerning” evidence of a significant impact on the mental health of both whistleblowers and managers with little support provided. It found there was “no clear documented process” to highlight serious, urgent issues to the appropriate manager. Healthworkers’ union Unison said staff were often labelled ‘trouble-makers’ with senior managers "defensive fr

    Every year, the NHS surveys its staff to find out about their experiences of working for their respective organisations. This week saw the publication of the 2020 NHS Staff Survey, which had almost 600,000 respondents, representing 47% of NHS staff across 280 NHS organisations.[1] This huge response testifies to the increased pressure placed on healthcare services over the last year. While the results do suggest improvement in some areas, including health and wellbeing, it is clear more work needs to be done as we begin our transition out of the COVID-19 pandemic. We can see, for example,

    Clinicians within a major teaching hospital’s cancer services have raised multiple concerns over patient safety, which they believe have resulted from badly planned service changes in response to the covid crisis. HSJ has spoken to several staff members who have worked in the haematology speciality at University Hospitals Birmingham Foundation Trust since last June, when the services underwent significant changes to free up capacity for coronavirus patients. This involved most haematology services at Heartlands Hospital in east Birmingham moving to the trust’s main Queen Elizabeth Ho

    A nurse who was threatened by colleagues for speaking out about care failings at Mid Staffordshire Foundation Trust has said bullying remains a “real problem” in the NHS. Helene Donnelly has told MPs that more than 10 years on from the scandal – commonly known as Mid Staffs – she was still seeing “echoes” of what she experienced happening across the country. “Although it is in the minority, as we saw at Mid Staffs the results can be absolutely catastrophic” She called for the development of a national body to improve workplace cultures in the NHS and “stamp out bullying once and

    Nine months ago, Boris Johnson praised staff at St Thomas’ for saving his life. Now, a senior intensive care nurse at the London hospital has warned that patient care is being compromised because of staff shortages and a failure to plan for the second Covid wave. Dave Carr, an intensive care charge nurse, is one of many NHS workers desperate for the public to know what is going on inside their hospitals at a time when misinformation and scepticism about the virus are rife. “The public needs to be aware of what’s happening. This is worse than the first wave; we have more patients than

    Background From 2008 to 2014 my company ran education sessions on managing medicines in a mental health trust.

    Shipman, Mid Staffordshire, Morecambe Bay, and now Ian Paterson, the breast surgeon that performed botched and unnecessary operations on hundreds of women. The list of NHS-related scandals has got longer. It's tempting to say the health service has not learned lessons even after a string of revelations and reviews. But is that fair? asks BBC Health Editor Hugh Pym. The inquiry, chaired by Bishop Graham James, makes clear there were failings at every level of a dysfunctional health system when it came to patient safety. The public and private health systems did not compare notes about

    In early January, authorities in the Chinese city of Wuhan were trying to keep news of a new coronavirus under wraps. When one doctor tried to warn fellow medics about the outbreak, police paid him a visit and told him to stop. A month later he has been hailed as a hero, after he posted his story from a hospital bed. It's a stunning insight into the botched response by local authorities in Wuhan in the early weeks of the coronavirus outbreak. Dr Li was working at the centre of the outbreak in December when he noticed seven cases of a virus that he thought looked like SARS - the virus
