1 IN 5 FEMALE DOCTORS HAVE BEEN SEXUALLY HARASSED AT WORK

A fifth of women doctors say they’ve been sexually harassed at work in the past 2 years.

New figures from the Irish Medical Organisation also reveal a quarter were bullied based on their gender during the same period.

The report was part of a submission to the Public Service Pay Commission, which is trying to determine why recruitment and retention is a problem for the sector.

The Irish Times reports that the IMO argued that as well as the cultural problems, pay levels are the main reason for emigration among young doctors.
