In my case my manager stepped in immediately and the situation, while it is not gone away completely (you can still feel a vibe), it has been placed firmly under control and the staff member in question now just leaves me alone.

The Government should advertise to the public, from September to January on a yearly basis, to all media outlets the importance of taking the yearly flu jab.

I feel you have joined two separate issues with different root causes together, i.e. Bullying and harassment to NHS staff by other members of NHS staff and the second issue of violence to NHS staff. This joining together is already expressed in the posts on this forum and provides a confused narrative..

I've been bullied in my previous work. I've complained about it, but nothing has been done. No one informed me about the progress. I couldn't work there any longer and I had to leave. I feel that NHS brushing things under the carpet. There is also fear of staff what's going to happen to them when they complain. I also have been bullied by patient who was very abusive and resist to me. He made me cry. I felt awful.

Bullying is a national problem and not only in the care sector but everywhere. Especially now we have the...

Bullying happens from upwards - downwards, downwards - upwards - and sideways. Please define the behaviours and attitudes that can influence and cause bullying, harrassement and undermining behaviour.  Courtesy and kindness to each other is essential. Please help us to make happier work places.....we spend a lot of time at work...this is the greatest weekness - unhappy work places...too much pressure... help us.

The NHS Trusts are under the illusion that the business management model is the holy grail of running an effective service. In practice this means the dedicated graduate profession of critical clinical front-line staff i:e the nurses - are expected to do "more with less" as par business parlance. "...Excessive administration burden, Nursing staff shortages and sub-optimal staff retention. The...(transformation) of the workforce - the move away from a full-time workforce to that of part-time...
