Promoting partnership working in the NHS

Tackling Bullying in the NHS: A collective call to action

To deliver the best care to patients, we need to create healthy, supportive, positive cultures in our organisations. Creating cultures of compassionate care is a key task for leaders at all levels of the NHS. There is no place for bullying in compassionate cultures.

The SPF Workforce Issues Group (WIG) has led work to develop a collective call to action, drawing together evidence and front line experiences which have resulted in a strong case for change. A range of suggested actions supported by resources, advice, guidance and good practice are available to help organisations develop their own plans in partnership to tackle bullying. Work on developing these resources will continue.
