SAS have been providing staff attack response systems to the Trust for the past 15 years; and during that time developed enhancements to meet the changing needs of mental health patients. The solutions cover our specific requirements for staff attack, nurse call, door monitoring and bed monitoring throughout a range of specialist mental health services that the Trust offers.
Over the last 12 years, The Worcester Health and Care NHS Trust (and its predecessor organisations) have deployed the Red Alert system across the majority of its inpatient Mental Health sites, and this provides staff with the confidence that the system will provide a safer environment to work within.
