So..... good news for the University. It can be ranked up there with the National Health Service in the United Kingdom.
Many of the "dangerous" behaviours identified in an investigation into the iconic National Health Service are exactly the same as those found at the University of Newcastle -
From the NHS investigation report:-
- workers "who blow the whistle on substandard and dangerous practices are being ignored, bullied or even intimidated in a 'climate of fear.'"
- "staff who have sounded the alarm about dangerous practices have found themselves shunned, suspended and sacked by hospital bosses instead of having their concerns taken seriously. "
- "I’ve spoken to people who have not only lost their jobs, their livelihood, they’ve not been able to find other jobs to do. And I’m afraid in some cases have felt suicidal and become ill as a result.”
