The trust required not only security duties for the main hospital but also one-to-one bed watch duties for patients who may have challenging behaviours. The main security duties are to supplement the main Hospital Safety Team carrying out patrols and fast bleep incident response to incidents across the Trust, whereas the one-to-one bed watch cover is a very specialist role supplying officers trained in mental health awareness, dementia awareness with a special emphasis on conflict resolution and physical intervention in a healthcare environment.
We act as both a security consultancy and as a critical friend to the Trust being their security sector expert, on for example legislation, security risk planning, conflict management and physical intervention training and policy writing all based around the safety and security of patients, staff and visitors and asset protection.
