The NHS trust running hospitals in Northumberland and North Tyneside will be launching a campaign to emphasise zero tolerance of physical violence and abuse towards staff.
This is one of the next steps highlighted to the board of Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust at its meeting on 28.03.2019 in response to the results of the annual NHS Staff Survey. The results saw Northumbria placed first in 20% of categories and outperform the majority of its peers in 90%. Overall, this represents one of the strongest performances in the NHS with Northumbria ranked second nationally among acute (hospital) trusts (out of 86) and sixth overall (out of 163).
