11. What to do if you witness someone being bullied or harassed

11.1 Radiography is a caring profession and it's important that you carry those values beyond patients to your colleagues and those around you. If you see someone in distress, you should try and help them. Offer to support them if they choose to speak up. However, please remember it is their decision.

11.2 If you witness behaviour you think is bullying or harassment, you may want to talk this through with the perpetrator. If do, do so as soon as possible after the incident, in private and calmly, taking the approach that you had felt uncomfortable in the situation and it was possible that it could be seen as bullying or harassment.

11.3 In serious incidents you may wish to report, in confidence, what you have witnessed to a responsible person, stating how it has affected you.
