NHS Employers welcomes government backing for private member's bill on sentencing for attacks on emergency workers

Responding to the news that the government has backed Labour MP Chris Bryant’s private member’s bill calling for the maximum sentence for common assault against an emergency worker to a be doubled to a year, Danny Mortimer, chief executive of NHS Employers, said:

“We support the principles of Chris Bryant’s bill on tougher punishments for those who attack emergency workers and are pleased to see it has received government backing.

“NHS emergency staff, and indeed all health service staff, should feel able to perform their jobs, which save so many lives, without the threat of violence, abuse or harassment from patients or their relatives.

“The NHS has a zero-tolerance attitude towards violence and will pursue legal action against offenders whenever appropriate. We look forward to the outcome of Friday’s debate on the bill.”

Antibiotics 'may be lost' through overuse, says chief medical officer

England's chief medical officer is urging global leaders to tackle the growing threat of antibiotic resistance.

Medical experts say these drugs are being used too much, and that 25,000 people die across Europe each year because of drug-resistant infections.

Professor Dame Sally Davies says she is "really worried" that without effective antibiotics, common medical procedures such as caesarean sections and cancer treatments could become too risky.

She is attending a meeting in Berlin of health officials around the world, to discuss a "call to action" to tackle the problem.
