Zero Tolerance Policy

Abuse is Not In A Day’s Work

Abuse in any form towards our staff and our patients will not be tolerated, accepted, or ignored.

The NHS in Rochdale is taking a zero tolerance approach to abuse and aggression towards our staff and patients.

  1. Dealing with aggression and abuse takes our staff away from caring for our patients.

  2. Our staff have the right to work in a safe environment so that we can help you.

  3. We have the right to refuse treatment and take further action against anyone who threatens the safety of our staff and our patients.

Please share this message and help us focus on caring for you in a safe environment for all. #NotInADaysWork

Throughout the NHS there is a zero tolerance policy towards threatening, violent and abusive behaviour.

All members of the practice have the right to do their work in a violence free environment, and everything will be done to protect their right. Under no circumstance will such behaviour be tolerated.

If you do not respect the rights of the staff, we may make arrangements for you to be removed from the practice list.
