Regency provides security patrols at several hospitals within the MSB Group – Mid-Essex, Southend and Basildon Hospitals Group. Every day Regency Security guards will patrol A&E departments, ensuring the safety of staff and the public. In addition, security guards will operate a bed watch service for specific individuals when required.
Last October, Health Secretary, Matt Hancock stated the NHS will adopt a “zero tolerance” approach to violence against its staff.
The most recent NHS staff survey showed that more than 15% of NHS employees have experienced violence from patients, their relatives or the public in the last 12 months – the highest figure for 5 years.
Regency Guarding and Events can assist in the reduction of violence and staff abuse in hospitals. Adding a physical security presence will help reduce violence, both verbally and physically as most often a guard is seen as a deterrent. In addition, it also sends a message of protection for the staff, patients and families.
If we can assist in any Guarding services for your hospital, please get in touch by calling our team on 03300 563888 or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
