Health & Social Care

Since 2009, Reliance Protect has been the leading provider of lone worker safety solutions to the health and social care sectors.  We have over 450 contracts with NHS Trusts throughout the UK, delivered through our NHS Frameworks.

 

 

 

We were selected as the single supplier to deliver the two previous NHS Lone Worker Framework Agreements under NHS Protect, two of the largest contracts of their kind anywhere in the world.

We have now been selected to offer both our lone worker safety solutions and body worn camera solutions via an NHS Supply Chain Framework. 2019 marked 10 years for us providing leading edge lone worker safety solutions via NHS Frameworks.

Over this time we have seen the increasing integration of community-based healthcare staff with social care staff as social care teams embrace our solutions, working side by side often visiting the same service users in sometimes difficult and challenging circumstances and in a variety of settings.

We understand the challenges NHS Trusts and Local Authorities face. Multiple field-based teams are often covering large geographic areas, juggling increasing pressures to deliver 24/7 services with constant budgetary pressures.  Our solutions have evolved over the last 10 years or so based on these unique factors, whether that’s supporting your local team leaders and managers, developing easy to access elearning courses, through integrating our data and management information centrally into your data business analytics systems. 

We have over 450 contracts with NHS Trusts and private sector healthcare providers with long standing partnerships with some of the biggest NHS Trusts in the UK.  We provide lone worker safety staff out in the community, visiting service users in their homes.  We also provide body worn cameras for in-patient staff onwards in mental health trusts and Trust-wide security staff.

 

 

Over the last few years, in line with our community transformation agenda, we have increased to over 3,000 lone worker devices to keep ours most at risk workers safe. This, coupled with the ongoing roll out of over 500 body worn cameras to frontline in-patient clinical teams, greatly supports our Violence Prevention and Reduction Strategy within the organisation.’  Head of Safety, Security and Resilience
