GMB Warns NHS Highland: Get On With The Delivery Of Sturrock Recommendations

Following today’s (Tuesday 23 July) meeting of the NHS Highland Board, GMB Scotland Senior Organiser Drew Duffy said:

“Our members in NHS Highland are growing increasingly concerned about the sluggish pace with which the implementation of the Sturrock Review is taking place.

“There has been an epidemic of bullying and harassment in NHS Highland and many livelihoods have been ruined or lost. It demands a swift and transparent response so confidence can be rebuilt.

“There is new leadership in place with a fantastic opportunity to implement the necessary recommendations, but we cannot afford to get bogged down in bureaucracy.

“The message from our members is clear: Let’s get on with it together, at pace and with purpose.”
