NHS lone workers get personal alarms

6th May 2009

NHS staff who work alone in the community are set to receive personal security alarms.

Some 30,000 i750 identicom devices made by firm Reliance will be issued. They can help locate the user and are linked to a trained individual who can summon help if needed. Figures provided by NHS trusts show that 240,000 devices will be needed to cover the entire community workforce so primary care trusts will decide which of their staff will receive the devices. The move was welcomed by the Community and District Nurses Association.
