Hundreds of abusive health workers able to work in NHS, warns regulator


In my experience the disciplinary procedure is rarely carried out appropriately. As a result of this I am often astounded that poorly performing health care professionals are allowed to continue in post. The disciplinary process necessitates a great deal of work in order to monitor, investigate, document and give the individual the opportunity to improve and defend themselves. Some individuals find criticism hard to take and simply move on. When references are taken up if the individual was never taken through the disciplinary process poor behaviour can not therefore be referenced.
