SECURITY - Hold to Account

Our committed, caring and dedicated staff are our most valuable asset.  We are committed to protecting our staff from violence, harassment and abuse at work.  We encourage service users, visitors and staff to report all such incidents as soon as they occur.  We would, of course, prefer that incidents against our staff did not occur.  However, we have a ‘zero tolerance’ attitude towards such behaviours and will take action and, where appropriate, work with the Police to bring those responsible to justice.

Our service users, visitors and staff deserve to work and be treated in a safe, calm and healthy environment.  We will safeguard our property and assets from theft or criminal damage.  We will consider taking action against anyone who deliberately damages Trust equipment or property.

Please help us to ensure that Sheffield Health & Social Care NHS Foundation Trust remains a safe environment for everyone.
