Violence and aggression

Our staff should be able to carry out their work without fearing for their safety. We do not tolerate threatening or aggressive behaviour towards staff. Anyone who behaves in this way or who damages hospital property will be asked to leave by our security staff. 


Dartford and Gravesham operate a Prevention of Violence and Aggression Against Staff policy regarding violence or aggression and if appropriate, we will take legal action, which could result in prosecution.
