Bullying in the NHS

This thorough article discusses the emotional intricacies of bullying. Written for the Christian Medical Fellowship of the United Kingdom, this article can also be applied to a wide range of other workplace scenarios where bullying is prevalent:

“Bullying is abuse through the misuse of power; and is alive and well in the NHS. Supervision and mentoring are meant to be formative, but can be destructive when they demean abilities and undermine self-esteem. When we are bullied we should carefully record the facts; determine whether the criticism was unjust, and confront the bully, perhaps with a supportive third party, in a civil and polite way. If an apology and change in behavior is not forthcoming; then it may be necessary to proceed to a formal complaint. Whatever happens everything should be approached in an attitude of prayer, forgiveness and love.”
