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//. According to the figures that were released by the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust (RCHT) shows that the staff had reported 224 incidents of violence, which is an increase by 47%.

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. The Health Minister Caroline Flint has announced that the people who abuse or threaten NHS staff could be prosecuted, fined £1,000 or removed from NHS premises.

Stuart Roden from Unison has said that the increase in the more serious cases of violent attacks in Cornwall was alarming.
