GPs to receive training on tackling unprofessionalism from GMC


bullying is a coping mechanism for underlying stress due to various causes. If you don't sort the underlying causes you will not change the coping mechanism. many of these people are struggling with overwork, poor management structures, underfunding, unrealistic expectations, fear of making a mistake and being sued, depression and anxiety, addiction, personality disorders , lack of support and training from the NHS etc etc etc and are often subjected to bullying themselves. If you don't understand the problem and tackle its root causes nothing will change. this idea is to placate the victims only and does nothing to change the NHS culture that incites such behaviours in the first place.
