Zero Tolerance to Staff Abuse

Zero Tolerance to Staff Abuse

Maintaining a safe, calm and healthy hospital environment

We want your local hospital to be a safe, calm and healthy environment for our patients, visitors and staff at all times. Our committed and dedicated staff are our most valuable asset. Verbal and physical abuse or harassment of them is totally unacceptable. We encourage staff and our patients and visitors to report all incidents of harassment and violence.

Police assistance will always be requested when violent incidents occur and the hospital will support staff who wish to bring private prosecutions against the perpetrators of abuse or harassment. We will also consider taking action against anyone who deliberately damages trust equipment or property. Please help us to ensure that the North Middlesex University Hospital remains a safe environment for everyone.
