The Scottish Government has announced that a confidential phone line for NHS staff to raise any concerns is to be introduced.
The line will be piloted in the spring of 2013 for 12 months and will be delivered by an independent organisation to ensure confidentiality and impartiality.
Any concerns that NHS Scotland employees raise will be passed on to the relevant regulatory organisation for investigation.
Health Secretary Alex Neil said:
"It is vitally important that NHS workers feel safe enough to raise any concerns they may have and I will not tolerate any bullying in our NHS.
“We already have very strict policies preventing bullying and harassment in NHS Scotland and this will ensure they are enforced as well as providing even more support for our staff.”
