Respect in the work place

Our ambition is to provide an outstanding level of care to our patients and communities. Evidence shows to achieve that we need to be an outstanding place to work as well.

To do this we put respect at the heart of how we work with colleagues, patients and carers.  So by choosing to work here we all also choose to be models of respect. There is no place for bullying, racism, discrimination or other poor behaviours. 

Make or Break: Incivility in the workplace

See how incivility affects all of us in the NHS and how that can impact patient safety. Join on staff on their journey as they reflect on the real-life effects of both incivility and active kindness. This video was devised, filmed and produced by the Elena Power Simulation Centre.
