NHS Employers Domestic Abuse Policy

A draft domestic abuse policy for NHS Trusts to adapt, which ties in with existing violence and aggression policies, is  available on the Health and Wellbeing section of the NHS Employers website (

This policy has been produced in partnership with colleagues in the field, and provides a clear statement to staff of the support they can expect from their employer if they are subjected to domestic abuse, especially if the perpetrator carries that violence into the workplace.

The aim of the policy is to promote the health, safety, well-being and productivity of all employees but the success of its implementation relies heavily on the commitment of staff at all levels within the organisation – particularly board level – and its integration into the trust culture and management practice.
