Nottinghamshire Healthcare takes hate incidents and hate crimes very seriously and we are committed to ensuring that all our colleagues feel supported if they experience a hate incident or hate crime or feel able to report it if they see it happening. Hate incidents are unacceptable in any organisation and we need to do all we can to address it when it happens.
As part of our commitment to addressing all forms of hate incidents, to encourage those who experience it to come forward and for those who see it to report it, we have launched our 'No Excuse for Abuse' campaign. You can find out more about our campaign here.
We want to be very clear: “We will not tolerate any form of abuse, harassment or violence against colleagues, visitors, carers and those who use or services, whether verbal, threatening or physical. Remarks or behaviour based on someone’s gender, mental health, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation, age, disability or gender identity will not be tolerated.”
The campaign also focuses on encouraging colleagues, patients, visitors and carers to See, Report, Support, and to speak up and report any hate incidents if they see it happening and for staff to support those who experience it.
If you have seen or been a victim of hate incident or hate crime you can report incidents to Nottinghamshire Police by calling 101 or dialling 999 in an emergency.
