Bullying at Scarborough Hospital: here's what NHS figures show
The latest NHS staff survey shows that bullying at York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has been on the rise for the past four years.
In 2015, 16.2% of staff reported at least one incident of bullying, harassment or abuse from other colleagues.
The figure rose to 17.7% in 2016 and 18.6% the year after, while in 2018 it reached 20.4%.
According to the survey, it has been above the national average for the past three years.
Also monitored in the report is the number of staff who reported bullying, harassment or abuse from managers.
Figures show that this has slightly decreased compared to the previous two years as it went from about 12% to 11.3%.
However, it still remains higher than four years ago when the figure stood at 10.5%.
This means that last year out of a workforce of approximately 9,000, more than 1,000 were affected by bullying.
