Violence Against NHS Staff On The Raise

New reports and figures seemingly indicate that the number of violent attacks on hospital staff in Cornwall has almost doubled over the past year//.

They explained that there were more than 60,000 cases of the patients or relatives physically assaulting the NHS staff members nationally last year alone.
