I was sexually assaulted in the back of my ambulance. Frontline staff need protecting

from The Guardian

As an ambulance technician for many years, I have learnt to cope with the many difficult situations and challenges thrown at you in the line of duty. But a night shift in the centre of town can be tough at the best of times. And I remember this particular night shift as though it happened yesterday. In March last year my colleague and I were sent on a call to help a man who was drunk and doubly incontinent in the town centre. Patients can present challenges like this, but we are here to help those in need because that's our duty of care. I dialled in to check with our control centre whether this man was a known patient and whether he posed a known risk. I heard nothing back to sound alarm bells, or even raise slight concern. more
