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.

We do not report this information. We record deaths in service but not the cause of death or whether there was a grievance ongoing at the time of death.
