How We Change the Culture of Medicine


A talk given by Simon Fleming at #HLA17 on the Hammer It Out campaign he was instrumental in setting up and leading. The aims and description of the campaign are:

  • To create a positive workplace culture  that is free from bullying, harassment and undermining behaviours
  • To recognise the many positive aspects unique to T&O surgery and develop it as a highly desirable surgical specialty to work in, appealing to a diverse population and creating a balanced and representative workforce.
  • To nurture an environment that empowers individuals to speak up if they experience or witness unacceptable behaviours.
  • To promote and share examples of those who demonstrate exemplar behaviours in the workplace and use these to model further improvements in the wider NHS culture.
  • To inspire positive culture change to improve patient care.
