Well done Danny

PC Danny goes above and beyond

The CARES Monthly Award this month went to PC Danny Verral, presented by Terry Roberts. There were two major security incidents on AMU involving a high risk mental health patient who tried to harm herself and others. The Security Team and our Hospital Liaison Officer from the Met Police, Danny, went above and beyond their duties. Despite receiving multiple injuries, they dealt with the situation professionally and calmly, displaying all the Trust CARES values towards the patient and her family. They also took time out to comfort her family who were also forced to endure the distressing situation.
