'Crazy' scene as 12 police officers forced off patrol looking after City Hospital patients

Recommended Posts

Fedster

This was the astonishing scene outside a Birmingham hospital as a dozen police officers were taken away from frontline duties looking after prisoners or vulnerable people.

A picture of the car park at City Hospital showed three cars and three vans outside early on Thursday.

Unfortunately this is nothing new. There are always more police cars than ambulances outside our hospitals.

The local infirmary and minor injury units are like second homes. Though the tea is cheap and nasty and the coffee even worse.

Always make sure you’ve got your own Yorkshire tea bags and an emergency pot noodle...blood tests take 4 hours to analyse and the diagnosis that nothing is actually wrong - as you already knew/could predict - a further 2 hours. And someone with a hygiene problem  telling you repeatedly “I’ve changed my mind I want to discharge myself” and you having to repeat ad nauseum “it doesn’t work like that”, really makes a shift worthwhile and makes you feel like you’ve finally self-actualised.

It’s what I joined the job for.

It's a shame we can't charge these people with 'wasting NHS time."

But there you go.

I had a fabulous moment the other week. Arrested a shoplifter... (big job, big job) and after being arrested he asked, ”How longs it gonna be?”

“I couldn’t tell you, why, have you got somewhere to be?” I reply.

He says, “I’ve got a blood clot in my leg. I have to go to hospital everyday for an injection”

“When do you need to go?”

”I just go during the day sometime,” he says.

”What time did you go yesterday?” I ask.

”About 3pm. And I need my ‘script as well.” (It’s about 9am at this point.)

Anyway, long story short, we get to custody and he tells the custody sergeant he desperately needs to get to hospital for his injection and gleefully intervene, “But you said you didn’t need to be there until 3!” The sergeant then gives him a menacing glare and he looks down at his feet.

This is what Mrs May meant when she told police officers to deal with "crime, and nothing but crime".

In my force the custody Sgt would have had a coronary at that news and immediately RUI'd them.

But there you go.

I have to admit it’s one of my bug bears, when one of our clients decides to shout, swear, kick off or be a general nuisance in A&E/a hospital ward around people who are genuinely ill - using a genuine public service.

I therefore take a zero tolerance approach and regularly further arrest and crime S4/5 POA. It almost guarantees a positive outcome post custody. Even if it just wastes their time at court with a fine they’ll never pay.
