The SPF's tackling bullying in the NHS: a collective call to action, was signed in December 2016 by Danny Mortimer, Chief Executive, NHS Employers and former Minister of State for Health, Philip Dunne, and Christina McAnea, former Head of Health at UNISON. 

The call to action invited all NHS organisations to:

  • achieve the overarching leadership and cultural change to tackle bullying
  • support staff to respectfully challenge problem behaviours
  • publish their plans and progress so staff, patients and the public can hold them to account.
