Royal Marine stress training for Cardiff hospital staff


Techniques developed by the Royal Marines on how to deal with stress are being used by hospital staff working in an accident and emergency (A&E) unit.

It is part of a year-long pilot scheme at Cardiff's University Hospital of Wales (UHW).

Staff have had training similar to that used by marines to deal with "mental rigours" of their day to day role.

It comes after 83% of UHW's A&E staff said they needed more support to deal with work-related stress and anxiety.

Health correspondent Owain Clarke reports.
