Medspeak-UK
Exclusion from work; gardening leave. The removal of a person (generally understood to mean a health professional) from an NHS workplace when restriction is regarded as an insufficient measure, and justified where:
• There has been a critical incident where serious allegations have been made; or
• There has been a breakdown in relationships between a colleague and the rest of the team; or
• The presence of the practitioner is likely to hinder the formal investigation.

Key factors in exclusion:
• Protection of staff or patient interests; or
• To assist the investigative process.

The term is used by the National Clinical Assessment Authority in the UK, and is loosely equivalent to suspension; it is a manoeuvre reserved for only the most exceptional circumstances.
