Liverpool knife scheme going national

"Street Doctors" spreading to other major cities.

Two junior doctors from Aintree Hospital who started a project which sees them working with young offenders who're involved in knife crime, are seeing their scheme expand across the country.

The project has two messages; prevention, but also what to do if the worst should happen.

Nick Rhead, 25, and Simon Jackson, 26, came up with the idea after working with a small group of young offenders, and since 2008 they've worked with more than 1000 youngsters between 11 and 17, and are this weekend working with other doctors from Manchester, Sheffield, Nottingham and London.
