NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde takes extremely seriously the health, safety and welfare of all its employees, patients and visitors. It believes that violence and/or aggression towards staff and others is unacceptable.
Staff have a right to be able to perform their duties without fear of abuse or violent acts from patients or members of the public. No member of staff should consider violence or aggression to be an acceptable part of their employment.
In cases of incidents involving violence and aggression against members of staff, encouragement and support will be given to the individual involved to enable them to pursue the incident through reporting it to the Police.
