What does it involve?
The NHS Violence Prevention Team consists of two members of staff; a qualified Nurse and an Advocate, who are based within the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, which is Wales’ busiest ED and recently established as a Major Trauma Centre.
The team deliver advice, support and guidance to patients who have experienced violence with injury, with the aim of engaging with those injured whilst they are in hospital, and to promote movement away from lifestyles encased in violence by encouraging engagement with services.
