Case Studies

NHS FOUNDATION TRUST

SGC Security Services currently work with Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust as their Security Partner delivering Security to the Trusts Stakeholders, Patients, Visitors and Staff.

THE CHALLENGE

The trust required not only security duties for the main  hospital but also 1 to 1 bed-watch duties for mental health  and dementia patients. 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 1 – 1 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. The contract can fluctuate between 168 and  4500 hours per week depending on the needs of the Trust
