Motion text

That this House notes with concern the results of a recent Royal College of Nursing survey that shows that 40 per cent. of nurses have been attacked or harassed at work in the past year; recognises the distress that such threats, verbal abuse and physical attacks on nursing staff can cause to nurses already facing the pressures of a challenging profession; commends nurses and other healthcare professionals on the tremendous contribution that they make to the NHS; and supports measures to deal with those who harass, abuse or attack hospital staff using the full available force of the law.
