The rationale for this was to obtain anonymous accounts of health care workers’ perceptions, attitudes, values and beliefs surrounding their organisation and workplace cultures. Phase 2 is qualitative and consists of Cultural Health Check Healthcare Workers and Patient One to One Semi‐Structured Interviews. These were undertaken to provide real life accounts of health care workers’ experiences of their organisation and workplace cultures.
