Annual Conference Motion 65

ACM 65/2013 called for a full review of assaults in the secure hospital and prison estate.

“Given the unacceptable increase in violence within secure hospitals and prisons and the increasingly inadequate avenues of recompense for staff who have been assaulted. Conference mandate the NEC to commence a full review of assaults in our workplace.

Moreoever, following the outcome of this review the POA commence a campaign to raise public awareness of the risk we face when serving society”.

To assist in collating the information, which is necessary to pursue the terms of the motion, the POA Committee at Ashworth have produced the attached survey.

Some branches may have already completed and returned the survey, however a considerable number have not.

It would be most helpful if the outstanding surveys could be completed and returned to Linden House for the attention of Duncan Keys, Assistant Secretary, at your earliest convenience.

Your help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Yours sincerely


General Secretary
