The NHS in North West London is asking local people to respect the dedicated NHS staff who care for them by launching a #ZeroTolerance campaign to tackle threats of violence, abuse or harassment against NHS staff.
H&F CCG also launching our #ZeroTolerance campaign in response to the growing level of harassment of NHS staff that takes place online.
Threatening behaviour that targets staff members on social media such as Twitter, Facebook or Instagram is unacceptable, but unfortunately increasingly common in the digital age.
We have a zero tolerance attitude towards any incident in which an employee is abused, threatened or assaulted, either in person or online, and will take legal action if necessary.
– Use of force that results in physical injury or personal discomfort
– Serious or persistent use of verbal abuse
– Staff who are assaulted or abused outside their place of work
– Threatening behaviour that targets staff members on social media such as Twitter, Facebook or Instagram
