Zero tolerance for assults on ambulance staff7th July 2010
The GMB union has called for a zero tolerance approach on assaults on ambulance staff.
Its call for workers to get more protection from their employers to lower the risk of being hurt simply for doing their job comes after figures showed that everyday, three ambulance staff are the victims of attacks. There were 2,705 assaults on ambulance staff in the two years to April 2009 in the 11 NHS Ambulance trusts in England, 117 physical assaults in Scotland last year and 192 in Wales, according to the GMB.
