Bullying and harassment of junior doctors isn't going away, survey shows

57% of junior doctors report being bullied in their past year of training

More than half of junior doctors say they have been bullied by colleagues, and nearly a fifth say they have been sexually harassed, according to a new survey that suggests systemic issues remain.


The anonymous survey of some 440 doctors in first and second-year prevocational training shows bullying was perpetrated by a senior colleague in 60% of cases.
