UDHR Article 1 and the NHS

Article 1.
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood

To meet the article the NHS should not harass, bully or belittle patienta and staff. Recent employee attitude surveys suggest this is not the case.

Its a long read but is all there. One of the most startling data points in the report is that staff are abused more by managers and colleagues than patients!

We all hope that the NHS can thrive. But it does need to be kinder to itself, for people to want to work in it. It could start by helping those that can’t treat colleagues with respect find a new career outside the NHS.
