NHS Staff Respect

The 2021 NHS Staff Survey for England found that 27.5% of NHS Staff experienced harassment, bullying or abuse from patients, service users, their relatives or other members of the public in the last 12 months.

Recent surveys suggest that abuse of NHS staff from patients was rising​, and abuse and violence has been widely cited as a contributing factor to reduced morale amongst NHS staff.

Materials are available for use in healthcare settings to encourage patients to treat NHS staff with respect by ‘social norming’ this behaviour. The pre-populated assets feature NHS staff working in NHS settings including general practice, pharmacy, dental, optometry and secondary care (hospitals) across England and carry the message ‘We are here to help you. Thank you for treating us with respect’.

The assets are part of a package of measures designed to help and support NHS staff, which includes wellbeing resources and support for managing patients.
