Zero Tolerance Policy.
In line with the rest of the NHS, this practice has a zero tolerance policy whereby the use of aggressive or threatening language and or violent behaviour towards any of our colleagues will not be tolerated under any circumstances.
The clinical team, nurses and administrative staff at our Practice have the right to do their work in an environment free from this type of behaviour and everything will be done to protect that right.
The definition of aggressive or threatening behaviour is if the colleague feel threatened.
In general, if a colleague feels threatened, or there is abuse to a member of the team, then a letter will be sent from the Practice Manager advising that this behaviour will not be tolerated. Any future violation of this policy may result in removal from the Practice list.
In extreme cases a patient may be advised of their immediate removal from the list.
There will be no appeal process
