Suicidal NHS employee unfairly dismissed after being issued with ‘appalling’ legal threat by trust

20 February 2019 – NHE

Norwich Employment Tribunal has ruled that an NHS staff member was unfairly dismissed after being threatened with legal action by East of England Ambulance Services Trust.

The tribunal heard how Gordon Flemming, an NHS motor vehicle technician, had indicated he was seriously contemplating suicide after being subjected to bullying – but was told not to write so, or the Trust threatened to refer the letters to its solicitors.

A remedy hearing was listed to take place on 04.02.2019 at the Norwich Employment Tribunal but its outcome has not yet been revealed.
