NPAQ take aim at bullying in QLD Hospitals

NPAQ has taken aim at the Townsville Hospital and Health Service for what it believes is a “systematic” and “longstanding and toxic culture of bullying”.

“Unfortunately, Queensland Health’s bullying culture permeates the whole organisation, from top to bottom. There’s bullying that occurs both up and down the chain of management, and no one is truly protected."
