I work at a small out patients building on the outskirts of a small town completely isolated from the main nhs hospital in a nearby town

We at present have travellers on the land outside the car park entrance

When we finish at 18 : 00 hrs they are normally drunk and acting in an aggressive manner kicking and goading there dogs into fighting each other

This evening I had to return to the building and wait until others went home so as we could escort each other out ( we have no security)

I have expressed my concerns with our line manager but she seems lost as what to do

I believe that I have a right to withdraw to a place of safety without redress

It is very intimidating with them coming into the building using the showers and toilets our staffing consists of mainly women

Hi. That sounds tough.

 

Are you and your colleagues in a union? They should be able to help.

Has your manager spoken to the police? They have a specific team for working with travellers.


Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!

Yes I am in the union and our line manager contacted the traveller liason officer

They are trying to contact the landowner

so I would start off with demanding some sort of entry control that would stop them from just walking in and using the facilities. You should also look at the lone working policy and if there is anything in there that applies force your employer to abide by that policy and if that means no-one works there alone then the place is shut or they make suitable adjustments to the working day.

Security were going to come over from the main nhs hospital but apparently their not insured so they didn't come

Door entry control is a good idea that I will suggest

Thanks

dont suggest, demand. That is why i say what is in the lone working policy, you may have the right to refuse to be there alone without extra kit to help protect you
