Harassment, trespass and nuisance actions
Government policy is to protect staff from both violent patients and visitors. We have substantial experience in helping NHS and private sector healthcare clients in obtaining injunctions to protect their staff and prevent harassment.
We have also advised on policies dealing with violent patients/visitors and are sometimes called on to advise on the legal issues relating to implementation of such policies, including patient contracts and zero tolerance policies.
A special briefing on ‘Violence in the NHS’ is available on request.
