What do you think needs to be done to better protect ambulance staff?@xGypsyJenxIf there's clinical cause eg UTI related confusion there is grace for these patients but not for those choosing to be abusive #zerotolerance@jason_whalleyI bet verbal assaults is massive. How many staff get sworn at each shift and don't report it!Craig Harman @CraigAHarmanDo you know these two chaps? One of our #Paramedics was assaulted from behind in an unprovoked attack. He sustained serious injuries including broken ribs, a broken eye socket and serious bruising. Please get in touch with @BTP if you have any information or RT.WMAS LGBT @wmasLGBTSo @wmasrobmoore has been talking about his #bluelighthappy campaign and how @OFFICIALWMAS has over 70 #CorporateTweeters who are able to engage with the community in a variety of ways…If you look closely you'll spot us on Rob's presentation! #GreatWork #SocialMediaImpactTom Mallinson @MallinsonTExcellent revision session from @DaveWCurrie on nauseogenic vestibular stimulation today.
