Respect and Resolution Policy (All Wales)

Public Health Wales will not tolerate any form of bullying and harassment which occurs at work and out of the workplace, and will take all practicable steps to avoid and eliminate it. This includes homophobic, biphobic, transphobic, racial, religious, cultural, disability-related or age-related abuse, or abuse related to sex or gender identity/expression.   

Behaviour which may be described as bullying and/or harassment is not conducive to the provision of effective healthcare services and can undermine the confidence and performance of employees. It can also affect their physical and mental health and wellbeing and lead to absenteeism. The effects of poor relations between individuals can be felt across Public Health Wales and ultimately can have an impact on the care provided to patients.
