Zero Tolerance Policy

NHS Staff must be able to come to work without fear of violence, abuse or harassment from patients or their relatives. The NHS has a zero tolerance attitude towards violence (1).


Violent, threatening or abusive behaviour including shouting and swearing will not be tolerated at this practice.


Patients who act in such a manner will be asked to leave the premises; the Police may be called and you could be removed from our patient list.


Our staff are here to help you, please treat them with respect.
