Violence Against NHS Staff Rises: Time For PMVA Training NHS
Shocking figures recently released show that one in seven health professionals are attacked during their work in the last year. Sadly, violence against NHS staff has been growing, with figures now at a five-year high. An NHS survey found that 15.2% of staff have experienced physical violence in 2017.
Of course, it is important for every single person, regardless of their occupation to feel safe and secure at work. This includes all of the NHS staff affected by violence such as nurses, doctors, mental health personnel, ambulance workers as well as clinical staff too.
So, what can be done to help manage and prevent violence against NHS workers?
