Bullying and sexual harassment 'endemic' in NHS hospitals

Bullying and sexual harassment 'endemic' in NHS hospitals Findings show sheer scale of issue, with only a fraction of cases leading to disciplinary action

Hundreds of doctors have been accused of bullying and sexually harassing colleagues in the past five years, prompting concern that a culture of intimidation is thriving in the NHS.

Data shows that reports of bullying and harassment rose from 420 in 2013-14 to 585 in 2017-18. The figures, obtained by the Guardian using a freedom of information request, showed that only a fraction of these cases led to dismissal or disciplinary action.
