Keith Brown: 'Give nurses the skills to create transparent and safe cultures'


Exactly Mike, "Genuine transparency - often absent in the NHS - would help greatly" Not only "often" but almost certainly 99% absent, otherwise there would not be a 1:3 incidence of bullying. And some off shoots of the NHS are higher than others too. Keith Browne needs to get out of his ivory tower and come down to the real world to have a good look round, if he lurks in the sluice rooms and talks to staff who are not being tracked by the Powers that be, he will certainly find that the bullying net works go all the way to the top. When I made my reports in Tower Hamlets about bullying, it did no good and they bullied me some more. When I reported the Bullying in Hackney, everyone then pitched in. And when I reported the NHSD nurse management to first their Chief Nurse( she sat on her hands either literally or metaphorically). NHSD continued to bully me even though I had left the organization. So now I have reported them to the NMC, and well, the NMC are going to take 16 weeks to read my report. But i will not be surprised if I find the NMC bend over backwards for them. All the while they are busy destroying nurses who are still shackled to them.Where do you go, who can one appeal to? What sort of confidence does that give anyone? "Give nurses the skills to create transparent and safe cultures'" I am quite sure that if good nurses were allowed to flourish then we would have the skills to set up safe cultures but currently the weeds are choking the good nurses out of existence.
