CCTV to cut NHS violence

24th April 2009

A year-long trial to cut physical and verbal attacks on Welsh health service staff has been announced.

It will see CCTV cameras installed in accident and emergency units at four Welsh hospitals - Prince Charles in Merthyr Tydfil, Royal Gwent in Newport, West Wales General in Carmarthen and Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor - and in some ambulances. The move follows figures that show that in 2006/07 in Wales there were 8,466 incidents of physical and verbal abuse. If successful the scheme will be extended across Wales.
