Violent or abusive patients
Staff have the right to work in a safe and secure environment and we as employers have the legal responsibility of providing that environment. The Practice will not tolerate:
- Verbal abuse to staff which prevents them from doing their job or makes them feel intimidated or unsafe
- Threats of violence or actual violence to any member of the Practice
The GPs have the right to remove with immediate effect any patient who behaves in the above manner.
