Trial sees ambulance crews given body-worn cameras

The new kit is being rolled out as part of a trial from today (22 February), starting in areas where our staff and volunteers are considered to be most at risk, based on previous incidents.

Medics can press a button to start recording if patients or members of the public become aggressive or abusive.

Our latest figures show there have been 529 violent incidents between April 2020 and January this year.

Those attacks include kicking, punching, head-butting, biting and spitting and there have also been 31 assaults with weapons.

Any video footage recorded on our cameras can be used as evidence and in turn we hope it will help to secure more prosecutions.
