Recent reports are starting to ask if the NHS pressures have resulted in intimidating their staff into not speaking out about their problems at work.
This is an interesting topic to discuss, because the staff are always the heart of the healthcare environment.
It has been said that a ‘significant proportion of NHS workers would not raise concerns – either because they were afraid of the potential consequences, or because they felt nothing would be done.’ 
We want to know if you feel this is you? Do you feel your voice isn’t heard? Or, do you feel it wouldn’t make a difference if it was?
The same report stated that workers were scared to voice their opinions due to fear of bullying even. The very fact that staff are at conflict with each other shows the real severity that lies within NHS environments. In some cases staff feel so intimidated that there has been a rise in suicide rates.
We still hope that the NHS is finding solutions to it’s problems. But something that needs attention internally is clearly not thought about often, if at all.
So please let us know your concerns.
Do you feel unappreciated or intimidated in your position?
