Cole-Hamilton: “Heartbreaking” NHS Lothian staff face bullying & harassment

Responding to the news that a culture of bullying and harassment has been uncovered at NHS Lothian, Scottish Liberal Democrat health spokesperson Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP said:

“Our hard working NHS staff are up against it all the time trying to deliver first rate care against a backdrop of diminished pay, workforce planning failings and problems with social care, which stop patients leaving hospital on time.

“It’s heartbreaking to hear they have to perform lifesaving work in an atmosphere of bullying, harassment and intimidation.

“We must adopt a zero tolerance approach to any such culture which makes it harder for our much loved NHS staff to do their job.”
