Bullying in health goes unaddressed

For years the Canberra Liberals have advocated for a safe working culture at the Canberra Hospital.
Despite our strong advocacy, and pressure from peak medical bodies the ACT Government has failed to take swift and meaningful action.
We continue to hear reports from troubled staff of a sick and unsafe workplace. Nurses, doctors and hospital staff deserve to work in a safe environment, free from threats, bullying and intimidation.
The ACT Government has not taken action against perpetrators of bullying and intimidation.
The ACT Government has ignored the suffering of victims, and has tolerated and even promoted perpetrators of workplace cruelty.
The findings of the culture review found that poor workplace culture leads to poor patient outcomes. Health staff and patients cannot afford more of the same.
It is clear that health workers trapped in a cruel system will only ever get more of the same from this long-serving government.
