Abstract : There is little research on effective ways of stopping bullying in healthcare. The aim of the study was to evaluate how work experiences influence perceptions of bullying. We studied bullying a group of non-training grade doctors in an NHS hospital using a questionnaire. Levels of agreement or disagreement were rated using a 5-point Likert scale with 1 indicating low and 5 high agreements. 25/28 responded. Appropriate introduction to ward (r =.697 p=0.000), enough time to settle (r=.856 p=0.000), friendly co-workers (r=.754 p=0.000) and providing a good environment (r=.699 p=0.000) were strong correlates to not feeling bullied. Negative correlations were induction doing little to help settle in job (r=-.439 p=0.032) and feeling overwhelmed by workload (r=-.510 p=0.010). Not being bullied correlated strongly with recommending the hospital (r=.754 p=0.000). This study provides insight into employment experiences that relate to bullying and may suggest opportunities to reduce bullying
