To ask Her Majesty's Government whether regional directors of NHS England and NHS Improvement are responsible for tackling bullying in their regions; and whether regional directors are responsible for the conduct of any "turnaround directors" appointed in their regions.

Individual National Health Service organisations are primarily responsible for addressing and preventing bullying in the workforce and for the conduct of all their employees including temporary staff or specialist contractors.

To ensure consistency the performance management of NHS organisations is underpinned by a single oversight framework, which is overseen by Regional Directors.

The NHS Constitution also sets out the rights and responsibilities of all NHS staff to be free from harassment, bullying or violence.
