Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

A MAN has been jailed af­ter threat­en­ing hos­pi­tal staff while on drugs.

Wil­liam Ray­mond Sa­vory, 27, was ‘ag­gres­sive to­wards’ med­i­cal staff at Mac­cles­field Hos­pi­tal on Jan­uary 13.

His be­hav­iour was in front of other pa­tients at the hos­pi­tal, which is run by East Cheshire NHS Trust.

Sa­vory, of The Drive, Ash­ford, ad­mit­ted us­ing threat­en­ing, abu­sive or in­sult­ing words or be­hav­iour at Mac­cles­field mag­is­trates’ court on Fe­bru­ary 2.

He was jailed for 12 weeks.

Court records said that mag­is­trates opted for prison be­cause the of­fence was at a hos­pi­tal where vul­ner­a­ble peo­ple were present, he was ag­gres­sive to a num­ber of peo­ple and the of­fence was com­mit­ted un­der the in­flu­ence of drugs.

A spokesman for the trust said: “We are un­able to com­ment on in­di­vid­ual pa­tients.

“The trust has a zero tol­er­ance ap­proach to vi­o­lence and ag­gres­sion to­wards its staff and pa­tients who have the right to work and be cared for in a safe and sup­port­ive en­vi­ron­ment.

“The trust will not hes­i­tate to take ac­tion in­clud­ing pros­e­cu­tion against any­one be­hav­ing this way.”
