Isn’t It Time To Ban People Who Abuse Emergency Workers From Accessing The Emergency Services?

Posted by

For the past few weeks now, we have heard time and time again about members of the emergency services being abused and assaulted.

The very people who we ask to put their lives on the line to keep us safe are now becoming the intended targets of vicious and cowardly violence.

Some of those responsible have been caught. Many haven’t.

But other than a fine and a few weeks inside, what deterrent is there to stop people from abusing emergency workers?

But it would mean that if someone who has been convicted of assaulting a paramedic needed the ambulance service, then it would be down to the discretion of the paramedics whether or not they responded to their abusers call for help.

Something needs to be done to stop the violence which is being directed at our emergency services.

The current system does not seem to be acting like a big enough deterrent.

  1. DEFINITELY!!
    And it will free them up for people who really need them!!

  2. This would never work, too much “Human Rights” and all that. How about we work with the CPS to get a real sentence for a change instead of this slap on the wrist approach now where the suspects just laugh?

  3. I agree with James thoughts, and think the sentencing should be much more appropriate. Minimum 5 years, for abuse of any emergency or NHS worker. I think that the emergency services are so dedicated to saving lives that they would always respond to an emergency, even if the person was on a register. So, that approach wouldn’t work in practise.

    1. This is what I was thinking. I couldn’t imagine a paramedic refusing to help someone but also if someone is unconscious with no Id how would you know they were on the banned list?Unless we start branding them which isn’t a bad idea actually.😁

  4. If it’s a human rights issue to not attend, then perhaps a hefty fee for the private hire of an emergency vehicle would be appropriate…
