NHS stalking policy drawn up after staff followed


In light of these findings it is very disturbing that despite several requests for more parking spaces closer to the areas of work ie not outside hospital grounds out of sight and earshot of place of work, healthcare workers are continually put at risk of danger from stalkers and others on their way to work to care for others. Summer may be here but dark mornings and dark early evenings are all too close. Many staff have to park a good 10 to 15 minutes walk away from there workplace which is ludicrous considering half of the underground parking at the New Victoria Infirmary for example is left empty to be used by permit holders and visitors many of whom who for no particular reason for the past 18 months seem to uptake the opportunity to occupy these spaces. So I say risk management is the buzz phrase used by many but actions speak better than words, reduce risks, keep staff safe, keep them close to help not 10-15 minutes away hidden and open to stalkers.
