Kingdom extends services with Glan Clwyd Hospital

IMG_0334Kingdom is very pleased to have expanded the services that they are providing to Glan Clwyd Hospital (Ysbyty Glan Clwyd) in Bodelwyddan, Denbighshire, North Wales.

Ysbyty Glan Clwyd Hospital is one of the three major hospitals of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board and is currently in the midst of a multi-million-pound improvement scheme that includes a new neo-natal intensive unit which will centralise neonatal intensive care in North Wales.

The other two main hospitals that Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB) is responsible for is Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor and Wrexham Maelor Hospital. Kingdom started providing services to all three of these hospitals on 1st September 2017.

Initially Kingdom was just providing estate security (the protection of property and assets) for the three BCUHB hospitals, but this has been expanded to include project security for the new neo-natal unity and a contractual Accident & Emergency (A&E) response officer whose specific role is to protect staff, patients and visitors from harm. All of Kingdom’s security officers there have been specially trained to work at the hospitals in North Wales and have undertaken a range of courses including in Physical Intervention, Breakaway Training and Management of Actual of Potential Aggression (MAPA) to name but a few.

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board is the largest health organisation in Wales, providing a full range of primary, community, mental health and acute hospital services for a population of around 678,000 people across the six counties of North Wales (Anglesey, Gwynedd, Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham). They employ approximately 16,500 people. As well as being responsible for the three main hospitals, the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board is also responsible for a network of community hospitals, health centres, clinics, medical health units and community team bases. They coordinate the work of 109 GP practices, as well as NHS services provided by dentists, opticians and pharmacists across North Wales.

Kingdom is very pleased to have developed an excellent relationship with all three hospitals over the last six months and are now in discussions to start rolling out a Bed Watch service to BCUHB, similar to the one that we are currently providing to Manchester Royal Infirmary, Manchester Wythenshawe Hospital and Leighton Hospital in the North West of England.
