Zero Tolerance Against Violence

The NHS Zero Tolerance Zone initiative is a nationwide campaign to stop violence against staff working in the NHS. The Government is determined to ensure that staff who spend their lives caring for others are not rewarded with intimidation and violence. Violence means any incident whereby a GP or any member of staff is abused, threatened or assaulted in circumstances related to their work, involving an explicit or implicit challenge to their safety, wellbeing or health. Violence against staff working in the NHS is a crime and employers are working with the police locally to prevent it.

If you require any further information please see website www.nhs.uk/zerotolerance or speak to the practice manager.
