The Government has zero tolerance for abuse or violence directed at National Health Service staff. As announced in ‘Our plan for improving access for patients and supporting general practice’ on 14 October 2021, the Government and NHS England will work with the trades unions and the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges to launch a zero-tolerance campaign. In addition, NHS England will immediately establish a £5 million fund to facilitate upgrades to practice security measures.
