I can never stop learning and begin my 1st Masters Module in March 2018.
This is not a new phenomenon in nursing, I have been in nursing for over 30 years and have seen and heard of bullying within the NHS. I have also been at the recieving end and know how the victim can feel isolated and unworthy.
I was hoping that with the crisis within the NHS would bring the nurses together to concentrate on providing care for their patients and work as a team with respect for the role each member provides. But it seems not in all hospitals and maybe times haven't changed.
