A woman from Corby has been given a jail term after admitting two separate incidents against NHS workers at Kettering General Hospital.

Ashleigh Campbell, 29, was given a 16-week prison sentence after appearing before Northampton magistrates on Tuesday (May 18).

Campbell, of Scarborough Walk, Corby, was given an immediate custodial sentence after pleading guilty to assaulting a female nurse, a male healthcare assistant and one other male member of NHS staff during a hospital visit on March 10 last year. She also admitted breaking the glasses of the female nurse on the same date.

She pleaded guilty to two counts of causing harassment, alarm or distress to two other female NHS workers including a paramedic on June 23 last year.

Magistrates jailed her for 12 weeks for the first set of incidents and four weeks, consecutively, for the second set of offences because they ruled it was a deliberate attack on public servants carrying out their duties.

Campbell was also ordered to pay compensation totaling £684.

It is expected that she will appeal to a Northampton Crown Court judge in the morning (Friday, May 21) to grant her bail.
