“Doctors and midwives working in maternity services face higher levels of bullying than any other part of the NHS, MPs have been told.

According to the General Medical Counciltrainee doctors in maternity services report more than twice the level of bullying seen in the rest of the NHS while the Nursing and Midwifery Council said midwives were also more likely to be bullied.

MPs on the Commons health select committee heard that the culture in some maternity units was a major barrier to improving safety and tackling poor care.”
