Safety and Security

Body Worn Cameras for Healthcare Staff and Medical Professionals

NHS and care workers across the UK face a growing tide of abuse, including verbal and physical assaults.

Although they provide critical services on which we all rely, healthcare workers are face-to-face with members of the public who may be scared, frustrated and emotionally charged, which can lead to violence and confrontation. 

A recent report from the British Medical Association revealed that this trend is worsening with figures revealing:

  • 37% of healthcare workers had been threatened or assaulted in the last month
  • 15% had been physically assaulted
  • 87% of respondents had witnessed abuse of a colleague 
  • Cases of aggression across NHS trusts were up 17% year on year

We believe there is simply no excuse for violence towards healthcare workers who we rely upon in our times of greatest need, which is why we are proud to supply Body Cameras to the healthcare industry.

Long-term Benefits

Advantages of owning Body Cameras for Healthcare Professionals?

Body Cameras ensure that front-line Healthcare Professionals feel safer when working as the camera is a deterrent to situations with the public that may become abusive or threatening. Purchasing body cameras is a one-time investment in the security and safety of your staff, eliminating rental fees and leading to cost-savings over time.

Owning Body Cameras demonstrates long-term commitment, which will make staff feel safer at work. This can lead to numerous advantages such as increased staff safety and improved patient care.

With all staff using the same device type, it reduces the need for regular training and ensures seamless operation and familiarity with using the unit itself, the Evidence Management Software and evidence gathering procedures. By not having to rely on rental agreements, you can be rest assured of continuous operation and protection with minimal down-time disruptions.

Body Cameras ensure that healthcare professionals and medical staff feel safer when working, as the cameras act as a deterrent to any situations with the public that may become abusive or threatening.
