    In November last year, Unison and RCN raised concerns with NHS Forth Valley chief executive Cathie Cowan amid bullying claims made by emergency department staff at Forth Valley Royal Hospital. In light of the reports of bullying, a review was commissioned and leaked details revealed junior doctors were left unsupervised on shifts, nurses and doctors had said they are 'battle-weary', and many senior staff members have resigned their posts. Karren Morrison, Unison Forth Valley health branch secretary has said: ‘Last year, concerns were being raised by our members who worked in, or wh

    A new survey by the BMA was conducted throughout the UK on moral distress from 18 March 2021 to 12 April 2021. It was found that those doctors who worked with Covid-19 patients and doctors who were from ethnic backgrounds, were more likely to say moral distress was a feeling they had experienced. It was also found doctors from ethnic backgrounds were also more likely to say moral injury resonated with their experiences. The results of the survey has raised concerns for staff wellbeing with the BMA asking that the government increase staffing to the NHS, and provide emotional and p

    Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your experience of Long Covid? I’m a Respiratory Consultant and caught Covid-19 back in November 2020, during the second wave in the UK. Since my initial infection I have suffered from persistent symptoms including palpitations, distressing skin rashes, disabling fatigue, cognitive issues and urinary incontinence. I have not yet been able to return to work. Do you believe you caught the virus while at work? Yes, without a doubt. I was working with infected patients and, like many frontline colleagues, became ill myself. We didn’t

    The following guideline will help to support a consistent and fair approach to the management of staff following events involving healthcare associated harm. It is based on the following premises: Healthcare is a complex and high risk activity prone to healthcare associated harm. Weak systems create the conditions for and the inevitability of human error. Latent conditions preceding adverse events include poor decisions, poor designs, poor supervision, inadequate tools and equipment, and the cumulative actions of individuals.

    This report shares the learning which has been identified as a result of research looking at how the Freedom to Speak Up role could be introduced in Primary Care and Integrated Settings. It illustrates some of the challenges in implementing Freedom to Speak Up in primary care, as well common themes and learning. The report identifies two models to support primary care organisations in developing their speaking up arrangements, bridging across the silos of GP, dental, optometry and pharmacy: Freedom to Speak Up within an organisation – an individual organisation model – such as a GP

The webinar will bring together a panel of experts to discuss what skills NHS staff will need as the world of work changes, with the likelihood that some work that has been done face-to-face will be virtual. On the panel will be Elspeth Griffiths, director of HR, workforce and OD for NHS South Central and West Commissioning Support Group, Kate Jarman, director of communications and corporate affairs, Milton Keynes University Hospital, Henrietta Mbeah-Bankas, he

    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

    When we put people on a pedestal, my experience is that they are less likely to be asked, ‘are you OK?’, writes Samantha Batt-Rawden, a senior registrar in intensive care medicine. Like many she has been touched by the groundswell of support from the public. But there’s a problem with this hero image, she says. "It’s not just that many NHS staff are feeling increasingly uncomfortable with being hailed as heroes for what they see as simply doing their jobs. Of course, we were going to step up to the plate when the COVID-19 pandemic hit. As doctors it was our duty. There was never any

    A nurse says the effects of "long Covid" mean she is "not the same person any more". Lynne Wakefield from Holyhead is still suffering with fatigue and "brain fog" after contracting Covid in June 2020. She said her employer had been "very good" supporting her, but other NHS staff told BBC Wales they felt pressurised to go back to work. The NHS Confederation said there was a package of support for staff affected by "longer term effects of Covid". A recent survey suggested about 56,000 people in Wales have symptoms of long Covid, which include fatigue, headaches and coughing.

    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

    Doctors, nurses and NHS bosses have pleaded with Boris Johnson to spend billions of pounds to finally end the chronic lack of staff across the health service. The strain of working in a perpetually understaffed service is so great that it risks creating an exodus of frontline personnel, they warn the prime minister in a letter published on Wednesday. They have demanded that the government devise an urgent plan that will significantly increase the size of the workforce of the NHS in England by the time of the next general election in 2024. Their intervention comes after the lates
