Please would you confirm the number of Bolton nhs staff deaths (by suicide or unconfirmed means), in the past 10 years due to (apparent or claimed; even when supposedly “unsubstantiated”) bullying and/or harassment by managers or staff. Additionally, please would you confirm the number of staff grievance received (either substantiated or apparently unsubstantiated) after or prior to any exempt of an in-house investigation with regards to bullying and harassment within the organisation.
