Three new 'independant' ACC specialists

The head of the country's Rural Medical Immersion Programme has revealed at least three experienced consultants have lost their district health board positions after a workplace crackdown on bullying and sexual harassment.

So where will these 'bully boys' turn to continue their lucrative feeding from the public purse?

ACC of course!

District Health Board chief executive group member Jim Green was not aware of the cases raised by Sijnja, but said the physician's indecent proposition was "absolutely and totally unacceptable on any level".

He said reporting questionable professional behaviour to registering bodies was helpful in identifying job candidates with issues from previous workplaces.

Boards were legally required to report incidents and it was left to the registering body to investigate and keep a record.

Green said a significant initiative to eliminate workplace bullying in the health sector was being spearheaded by a joint working party.

"This group believes it is time to put an end to this behaviour, which has been tolerated within our profession for too long," working party chair and Ministry of Health chief medical officer Dr Don Mackie said.

He said the medical profession was committed to eliminating bullying, harassment and discrimination in the workplace.

'Sleep with me and you'll get good marks'

It is a damn shame that the Medical Council and medical associations keep all their investigations and results 'private'. Why can they not name and shame medical "professionals" who fall way short of the mark.
