Every year there are thousands of assaults on NHS staff. Respect Us is a new campaign to highlight that by working together and respecting each other’s diverse backgrounds, we can prevent this type of behaviour and keep both staff and patients safe.
In NHS Forth Valley we aim to provide the best possible care for our patients and understand that people who come into contact with our services are there because they are unwell and need help. We are also aware that undergoing treatment can be stressful and worrying for patients but abusing staff who are looking after them is never acceptable. Our bid to reduce the number of assaults will include new resources and social media updates. Watch out for further information.
WORKING TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE THINGS BETTER!
