NHS Highland will launch its go-to service for staff who fall victim to bullying or harassment next week.

The health board will be told today that a Guardian/Speak-up service will start on Monday.

It is part of NHS Highland’s response to an independent investigation into claims of bullying within the organisation.

Two full-time “guardians” have been recruited, said the board’s director of HR Fiona Hogg.

“They will provide a ‘speak-up’ service which will provide colleagues with an opportunity to discuss matters relating to patient care and safety, whistle-blowing, bullying and harassment and work grievances,” she said.

“There is a programme of awareness sessions for key groups over the coming weeks, including to executive directors group, systems leadership team, area clinical forum, the clinical update meeting, Highland partnership forum and staff governance committee.”
