Security expert Abloy UK is showcasing its range of security solutions at Patient First 2015, with representatives on hand at stand H05 to discuss the systems that make it the leading manufacturer of keyless locking integration for the healthcare sector.

Held at ExCeL London between 12 – 13 November 2015, Patient First is a national event focusing on positive changes within the NHS mindset and methodology as the only way to improve patient safety outcomes.

Abloy will be promoting web-based security management solution, PROTEC2 CLIQ, which allows for the remote management of disparate or large electronic master-keyed sites at any time, from anywhere in the world. The system is gaining popularity, having undergone trials at Scunthorpe Hospital and Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

PROTEC2 CLIQ provides comprehensive audit trails on medicine cabinet cylinders and padlocks, and the ability to remove lost or stolen keys from the system, thereby providing tight key management at all times. This means nurses can be more efficient as they do not have to waste time looking for keys, and medicines are secured more effectively.

Abloy will also be presenting its OPTIMA system, which is the ideal solution for patient lockers. OPTIMA is an electronic handle set or escutcheon that provides a completely standalone single door control operating as an electronic master keying system.

Keeping patients’ belongings and prescribed drugs safe from loss or damage can be a challenge for NHS organisations, due to the movement of patients during their stay, their reluctance to hand over property for safekeeping and the volume of patients seen on NHS premises.

By securing these personal items in a cabinet or locker, patients can have peace of mind that their belongings are secure, and only they can access them using an RFID access card.

Jon Burke, Marketing Manager for Abloy UK, said: “PROTEC 2CLIQ has proven to be a valuable addition to Scunthorpe Hospital and Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, and we hope to see other healthcare organisations utilising the system in order to benefit both the staff and patients.

“We’re really looking forward to getting face-to-face with healthcare professionals at Patient First, and explaining how the PROTEC2 CLIQ and OPTIMA systems operate and the full range of benefits they provide.”
