Physical Assaults and Verbal Abuse Fall at "Maybo Trained" Sussex Hospital 

Once again the Argus has reported on the levels of physical assault and verbal abuse aimed at hospital staff across Sussex. Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals Trust (BSUH) was the only hospital to have reported a significant reduction in incident numbers.

Maybo has been working with BSUH since 2012/2013 to implement a training programme for security and clinical staff to manage conflict incidents more safely and confidently and to improve team working.

The resulting training programme won the Security Excellence Award Best Training Initiative 2013.

It's encouraging to see the programme continuing to transfer into practice, maintaining a downward trend in the number of reported incidents.
