DHB must release personal grievance numbers

NEW ZEALAND INDEPENDENT COALITION MEDIA RELEASE

DHB must release personal grievance numbers

NZ Independent Coalition leader Brendan Horan is challenging the claim that the Bay of Plenty District Health Board has zero tolerance for bullying.

The DHB’s governance and quality general manager Gail Bingham made that claim yesterday following the political forum organised by the Tauranga Moana Abuse Prevention group.

“It is a fact that I have had people coming to my office, seeking my help as an MP, because they have been bullied by their employer,” said Brendan Horan.

“Today, I challenge the DHB to tell the media how many personal grievances have been taken by their staff in the last two years. I challenge them to say how many of those personal grievances remain unresolved today.

“It is time for the DHB to walk the talk when it comes to a no-bullying approach.

“I have been proud to serve the people of Tauranga and the Bay of Plenty since becoming an MP, taking action for people needing help, and I hope to do so for another term,” he said.

Brendan Horan is leader of NZ Independent Coalition, and dedicated to changing politics for the better.
