Security for surgeries and pharmacies

Foremost Security currently protect 90+ surgeries and pharmacies across the East Midlands cities of Nottingham, Derby and Leicester and the towns surrounding them. These healthcare services / businesses operate in both the private sector and the NHS.

The out-of-hours cover provided by the Foremost team ensures that staff members are not called out to deal with security issues when the premises are not open to patients / clients.

The main services used within the healthcare sector covered by Foremost are Keyholding & Alarm Response, Mobile Patrols with Lock & Unlock occasionally too.

Risks and security services for healthcare properties

Surgeries and pharmacies are at risk from vandals and from thieves who believe they may be able to get access to drugs or equipment including computers. The premises are known to be empty out-of-hours which makes them an ready target for the ‘bad guys’. Of course, healthcare services also have to ensure that the sensitive personal client/patient information which they hold is protected and not viewed or taken.

The physical protections in place generally include high-security doors and windows, often with shutters/roller doors. CCTV is less common for such premises because of the risk of invasion of privacy issues which it raises during operating hours. The vast majority of surgeries and pharmacies have comprehensive alarm systems.

Foremost Security provide the vital human element of security which supplements the modern physical measures in place. The SIA licenced patrol officers who respond to alarm activations have received full training to deal with all scenarios.

The essential benefits of an external security provider

Minimising risk giving peace of mind

More Info

Adding the human element to your security defences minimises the risks to your operation and gives the best possible peace of mind

Protecting your staff

More Info

Stopping your staff members from being on the ‘front-line’ responding to alarms or responding to reports of prowlers or intruders. Reducing out-of-hours call-outs they face and using trained professionals to address all security issues makes sense.

Visible deterrence

More Info

Having uniformed security personnel visiting your premises acts as a deterrent to both external people and, we have found, tenants too.

Knowing a professional will arrive in a timely fashion stops many from transgressing.

Reduce costs / increase flexibility

More Info

In-house staffing of security services isn’t a viable option for most surgeries and pharmacies. The flexibility and support available from your professional security provider far exceeds that which an in-house team can provide and it is generally significantly less expensive.
