New study finds prevalent and harmful harassment and discrimination within NHS healthcare workforce:

TIDES findings are being reported directly to policy makers and used to create new and innovative training and intervention resources for NHS staff across the country.

We know that some NHS staff will unfortunately develop mental health difficulties as a result of their important work; however, others will no doubt thrive on the challenge and may experience post-traumatic growth.
