Paramedics to be given body cameras to protect them from abuse

The measures are part of a new wellbeing pledge for NHS staff and aim to reduce cases of physical and verbal abuse against the most at risk NHS workers.

NHS employers will also introduce fast-access systems to speed up access to free mental health support and physiotherapy for their staff.

The measures are part of the 10-year plan that the NHS will agree over the next six months as part of the planned £20.5 billion increase to NHS funding by 2023.
