Zero Tolerance to Bullying and Undermining

It is always the intention of the Quality Management Review Panel to create a supportive and open environment for trainees to discuss the quality of their training. Occasionally some people can find this experience uncomfortable, especially if they wish to raise a sensitive issue.

The Quality Management Review Panel recognise that training can at times be a pressurised and stressful process which may result in experiences that trainees may not wish to speak about openly, particularly those concerning bullying and undermining. NES promotes a strict zero tolerance approach to bullying and undermining behaviour, and all Quality Management Review Leads are happy to discuss concerns of any kind with trainees confidentially. If you wish to do this you can contact NES, in confidence, in advance of the Review via the Dental Directorate Quality Manager, or on the day by speaking to the Review Lead or Dental Directorate Quality Manager. Alternatively, you may wish to submit a notification of concern.
