UNISON is in the media today calling for an Independent Task Force to be set up after a prisoner was transferred to the Acute Psychiatric Unit at IRH with items including a knife.
This ward like so many others is over reliant on bank and agency staff and violent incidents have increased significantly.
UNISON says, “It’s easy for NHS bosses and politicians to claim that there isn’t a staffing problem in the NHS. This story and countless others clearly demonstrate that UNISON members are working flat out and that there is a need for many more staff in some areas.”
