4. If temporarily, the patient will be requested to attend a consultation at one of the designated venues for Violent Patients, so that the
Provider can make an assessment. The patient will be advised that if they do not respond to this request they will be placed
permanently on the Register.
5. Following the consultation, the Provider will inform the TVAT contact of the outcome of the assessment and recommended actions.
TVAT will inform TVPCA and LMC Secretariat.
Actions may be:
a. If a patient is considered appropriate, they will remain on the Violent Patient Register with an annual review. TVPCA will write to
the patient, practice, Provider and Out of Hours provider(s) giving the decision, date for next review and appeal mechanism.
b. If the patient is considered inappropriate to be on the Violent Patients Register, TVAT will allocate the patient to another primary
care medical services provider. Any reallocation will be controlled by TVAT to ensure that all information regarding the patient is
available to the receiving practice including a brief from the Provider on the assessment made. The allocation will be made to
incorporate patient choice as far as possible. Local Medical Committee (LMC) may be involved in the dialogue between practice
and TVAT.
6. TVPCA organise a Violent Patient Register Review on an annual basis.
