NHS Staff Conduct & Treatment Delay Errors

Whilst under the care of the NHS, patients and loved ones are owed a duty of care by all medical staff. Medical Professionals under the NHS are responsible for putting patients’ interests first and acting to protect them as well as respecting a patients’ dignity and choices. The NHS must abide by a strict code of conduct and provide a high standard of practice and care at all times.

Types of Staff Conduct & Treatment Delay Errors

Whilst most NHS staff treat patients with an upmost amount of care and respect there may be instances when the conduct of medical staff or professionals can fall short of what is expected. Some examples of errors in relation to NHS conduct include:

  • The use of verbal abuse
  • Failing to provide responsive and respectful care to a patient
  • Acting in an unprofessional and undignified manner which may cause patients distress 
  • Poor behaviour by medical staff to elderly patients or loved ones
  • Being forceful or vigorous when carrying out treatment or moving patients 
  • A failiure to keep a patients information confidential
  • Failing to maintain a patient’s dignity
  • Failing to respond to a patients concerns and preferences
  • Poor behaviour by medical staff to those who lack mental capacity
  • And other staff conduct errors
