Code of Behaviour in the 360 Degree Clinic

 Our clinic welcomes everyone who comes through our doors. We invite you to help us make this a safe and inclusive place for everyone. Our clinic serves people who experience discrimination, stigma and trauma, or who have in the past.  Our goal is to treat every person with respect and dignity.

  • We expect that everyone who uses the clinic will be respectful of others including staff and the space we share.
  • We will not tolerate violence against any person or group.
  • We will not tolerate behaviour or comments that are sexist, racist, homophobic, or transphobic.
  • We will not tolerate behaviour which affects the dignity of anyone including hurtful comments about someone’s physical or mental health issues, including their substance use.
  • We all get frustrated and angry sometimes. We may want to shout or swear. If you are feeling frustrated and angry, please do not yell or swear in public areas of the clinic. We ask you to keep in mind that we are a health service. People here at the same time as you may be ill, distressed, or getting bad news. Please consider what may be going on for other people.

Behaviour or comments that breach this code of behaviour are reasons to be asked to leave without service.

We are committed to protecting confidentiality and we ask you to think about the information you share about yourself and others in spaces that are not private.

We welcome your feedback as part of our commitment to providing a space and services which help you to feel included and valued.

 

Thank you,

360 NPLC Staff
