New Primary Care Staff Respect Materials

In recognition of the increasing abuse and violence that primary care teams now regularly face, the NHS has published a suite of downloadable materials and guidance for use by primary care staff to encourage patients to treat NHS staff with respect.

The materials include posters, social media graphics and display screen graphics that feature NHS staff working across England and carry the message ‘We are here to help you. Thank you for treating us with respect’. A poster template is also available which allows community pharmacy teams to feature photographs of their own staff with the same messages.

These resources are part of several measures designed to support primary care colleagues, which includes wellbeing resources for managing patients, available via FutureNHS. Note, you will need to register for a FutureNHS account to use this link.
