That this House notes with alarm that last year alone over 60,000 NHS staff were physically assaulted by patients and relatives of patients, which represents one assault for every 22 NHS staff; recognises the excellent service provided by NHS staff who are dedicated to providing patients with the highest possible level of care for the benefit of the public; deplores any attack or assault on NHS employees who deserve the greatest respect; and calls on the Government to take a zero tolerance stance in order to protect doctors, nurses and other NHS staff.
