Insulting Patients

At a recent visit to an NHS clinic, I was surprised to find the notice board filled with warnings that “Tough action will be taken” against abusers of NHS staff and that “Verbal or physical abuse of our staff could result in prosecution.”

As someone who has never seen anything but courteous discourse at clinics, I found these notices rather insulting. I wonder to what extent these are products of over-active unions trying to prove to their members how valuable they are?
