From Hugh Watkins, Head of Department,    

Zero tolerance to bullying and harassment is an essential requirement for a happy and healthy working environment, ie  a workplace in which we all treat each other with mutual courtesy, respect and consideration, regardless of gender or status. This is a responsibility that we must all share.    

Our Silver Athena SWAN action plan includes a commitment  to champion a culture of dignity and respect in RDM, where positive behaviour is recognised and there is zero tolerance of harassment and bullying.    

As part of a major initiative within the Department we commenced awareness training for Senior Staff, Group Leaders and Line Managers in 2016/17, and this is ongoing.  The Department has 22 trained Harassment Advisors who are available to talk to at any time.     

I am committed to ensuring any form of harassment will not be tolerated and should be challenged.    

Hugh Watkins,    

Head, Radcliffe Department of Medicine
