Aberdare’s priory hospital firms fined £400k after workers assaulted
Commenting on the news that companies running a mental health unit have been fined more than £400,000 aftercare workers suffered bite attacks from inpatients.
Shadow Minister for Social Care, Gareth Davies MS said:
“With the ongoing staffing crisis within the care sector in Wales, it is crucially important that we do everything to retain and recruit staff.
“People take carers for granted until the moment they need them. It continues to disappoint me that people don’t appreciate the sheer hard work and dedication of those working in the care sector.
“These shocking instances of workers being assaulted cannot be allowed to continue. Staff need to feel safe, protected and appreciated for all the hard work they do.”
