David Stewart welcomes official launch of process for dealing with bullying cases

Highlands and Islands Labour MSP David Stewart is glad that NHS Highland has finally formally launched the Healing Process allowing present and past staff to register their bullying and harassment cases

“I have been pursuing how people can use this process to lodge their cases following concerns from a number of constituents,” commented Mr Stewart.

“Despite the challenges of Covid-19, this will allow the many people who have contacted me to register and to link up either virtually or by a meeting which uses social distancing.

“There are many who have lost or left their jobs, and in some cases had their careers ruined, and will be unable to go to an industrial tribunal due to a time-bar on cases and unable to afford a civil case.

“This is a long-awaited step to getting some sort of closure and perhaps compensation for many who have been badly affected by their experiences.”
