The NHS is full of bullies !!
Managers are the worst offenders. They lie to cover their tracks, are totally unsupportive and ruin lives. Despite a huge complaint to the highest body available in the NHS it was all brushed under the carpet and it carried on.
I was physically ill going into work each day until one day I decided I can’t do this anymore.
I now work for a private company and love it.
I will never return to the NHS to work

Practice Manager did not care about the nursing staff, or any one come to that. no pay rises in 5 years as promised. She would blame any one for her mistakes. shorter times per appointment, for example one minute to do a flu jab, with height, weight and blood pressure thrown into that one minute. not possible even for wonderwoman. I got very despondent, left nursing all together. now 9 years later I regret leaving nursing.

Bullying everyday being treated like Cinderella as I was the youngest one, whilst they all gossip at the desk. we're here to look after patients risking lives not talking about your holidays, champagne and ooooh look what I've got attitude. I absolutely loved the job itself but they ruined my career in fact they ruined my life!!

I was forced out of my NHS Mental health job after 23 years. Reason Tupe..I had love Woking in the NHS but recently I would not recommended anyone to work for them. All the big wigs should come down to our level and see what's it like to work on the shop floor. They are selling out the service bit by bit. I am so unhappy at the moment, depression is stepping at present.
