A Christian nurse will today tell an employment tribunal that she was bullied out of her job for wearing a cross around her neck at work.
NHS theatre practitioner Mary Onuoha says she faced a campaign by bosses at Croydon University Hospital to make her remove the gold symbol.
She had been a staff member for 18 years and had worn the piece of jewellery for 40 years to mark her deep Christian faith.
But from 2015, she claims a succession of managers told her to remove the item from around her neck or the matter would face ‘escalation.’
She claims patient safety was risked in an operating theatre to discipline her and her head of department even said he would have to call security if she wore it in a clinical area.
Mrs Onuoha was told her small gold cross was a health and safety risk and ‘must not be visible’.
