“It’s vital that staff at every level feel able to speak out freely without fear of retaliation”

UNISON commissioned an independent consultancy to review bullying, harassment, discrimination and casework in the East of England Ambulance Service.

The 48 page report has been released today based on findings from the 534 staff who took part in the review.

Fraer Stevenson, UNISON Branch Secretary said:

“It’s vital that staff at every level feel able to speak out freely without fear of retaliation. It’s clear from the report that hundreds of our staff do not feel able to do that.”

“We have some very good managers in our Trust and their voices need to be heard and empowered. Some of the poor behaviours we continue to see appears to go unchallenged and this must change.”

“It’s important the Trust Board hear the concerns of their staff from across the Trust, support the recommendations in this report and commit to genuine change. This change needs to be modelled through their own behaviours and will require strong leadership.”
