Justin Madders responds to BMA report on bullying in the workplace

Justin Madders MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Minister, responding to the British Medical Association’s finding that bullying and harassment is common in the workplace, said:

“These are deeply concerning findings, which should be taken extremely seriously by Ministers.

“As the BMA’s study highlights, this Government’s relentless underfunding of our NHS has heaped pressure on staff and in some cases fostered a culture of bullying in the workforce. This is completely unacceptable.

“Our NHS should be the best employer in the world, and staff will now rightly judge the new Secretary of State by his actions not words in achieving this goal.”
