Hospital scheme tackles violence

A project based in A&E departments which tackles violence, thought to be the first of its kind in the UK, has been introduced in Glasgow.

The Navigators Scheme, funded by Police Scotland's Violence Reduction Unit, has been operating at Glasgow Royal Infirmary (GRI) since December.

It involves two navigators establishing a connection with people who are victims or perpetrators of violence.

They later discuss the agencies and services that can help them.
