CCTV cameras are to be installed in four accident & emergency units in Wales in a bid to help curb violent behaviour and verbal abuse against staff.
The trial will initially last for 1 year and will also include security cameras being installed into a number of ambulances. The hospitals taking part in this trial are Prince Charles in Merthyr Tydfil, Royal Gwent in Newport, West Wales General in Carmarthen and Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor.
If the installation of CCTV cameras helps to reduce violence and increase prosecutions then the scheme will be incorporated across Wales.
