Churchill Security has been working with the NHS for over 20 years, providing coverage for hospitals and various sites up and down the country. Churchill boasts an experienced NHS Security Management team who are overseen by our very own Local Security Management Specialist, (LSMS) an accreditation speciﬁc to the healthcare industry and only gained when an individual has the knowledge and experience needed in order to adequately provide security services to healthcare establishments. In addition to this, our team of NHS Specialists are managed by a Conﬂict Management Trainer which means we are able to deploy ofﬁcers who are competent in dealing with conﬂict management.

When Churchill guards your NHS property, no detail will be left to chance and risk assessments, health and safety, speciﬁc site instructions and any speciﬁc training requirements of our staff all come as part of the parcel.
In 2015, there were nearly 70,000 assaults on NHS workers, a ﬁgure that has risen by a staggering 25% in the last ﬁve years. This alone illustrates the real and often threats that workers and even visitors are exposed to when on an NHS property. But this is where Churchill’s specialist healthcare security can be of great assistance. With a team of trained and qualiﬁed ofﬁcers, we are familiar with the threats and scenarios that are common place in places such as A&E.
Our approach to security is to create a tailor made solution. You won’t be given a list of services and asked to choose. We will assess your property and make considered recommendations to give you the best protection, meeting your needs and your budget.
We realise that a sturdy security strategy is useless if unaware NHS staff aren’t equipped with information and an understanding of our presence. To combat any weak links in the operation, we ensure all your supervisors and managers understand our best practice methods in order to ensure general site safety is maintained at all times. Communication is a simple yet effective step we take in order to fulﬁl your security goals, ensuring there are no avoidable challenges caused by a lack of communication.
What sets Churchill Security apart from other providers is the clever way we pull together our services, making a fool proof security bundle that’s effective and easy to implement not only from a logistics point of view, but also from your staff’s perspective. The last thing you need is a disruption to your everyday working routine.
With ongoing support management, dedicated control teams, a mobile supervisory team, all overseen by our protective operations management team, why would you look elsewhere for NHS security in the UK?
Quality control plays an integral role in our NHS security solutions as a large part of the job is to prevent damage to the property, hospital equipment and of course all staff, patients and visitors. At every step, quality assurances is taken into consideration and we follow best practice site speciﬁc assignment instructions that will be agreed, communicated and implemented across your site. This will allow our guards to take responsibility of all safety elements and where necessary, investigate and contain situations that could prove dangerous or damaging to the NHS establishment in question.
We are proud to operate in the top 10% of security companies (as recognised by the SIA) and we have now had our Safe Contractor Accreditation for over 10 years. In 2015, we were awarded the ACS Pacesetters Award, an accolade we won for our ongoing excellence in security service delivery.
