WCCTV's body worn cameras, with their distinctive forward-facing screen, are protecting frontline workers across the UK's healthcare sector by mitigating against aggression and violence.
Our complete range of body worn video solutions are proven to reduce the number of verbal and physical assaults on healthcare workers whilst simultaneously capturing evidential quality footage of any incidents.
The presence of a body camera helps boost staff welfare, increases their confidence in dealing with situations, and creates a positive environment where both the professionals and public feel safe.
The Benefits of Body Cameras in Health Care
NHS and care workers across the UK face a growing tide of abuse, including verbal and physical assaults.
Frontline health care staff are amongst some of the most vulnerable workers. Although they provide critical services on which we all rely, they are face-to-face with members of the public who may be scared, frustrated, and emotionally charged, which can lead to violence and confrontation.
A recent report from the British Medical Association revealed that this trend had only worsened during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Disturbing figures revealed that:
37% of healthcare workers had been threatened or assaulted in the last month
15% had been physically assaulted
87% of respondents had witnessed abuse of a colleague
Cases of aggression across NHS trusts were up 17% year on year
At WCCTV, we believe there is simply no excuse for violence towards health care workers who we rely upon in our times of greatest need.
We are proud to supply our body cameras to health care workers across a range of settings and have seen first-hand the transformative benefits they deliver.
These benefits include:
Prevention and de-escalation of threatening and aggressive behaviour towards staff
Improved confidence of workforce in dealing with challenging situations
Capturing video evidence of any incidents to support prosecutions
Reduction in complaints and false allegations
Allows for video recording in areas not covered by traditional CCTV
Footage allows for retrospective review and training
WCCTV Body Cameras for Health Care
WCCTV's body cameras are deployed at NHS trusts and Hospitals across the UK. They are actively enhancing the safety and security of ward-based staff and security teams who are subjected to unacceptable levels of abuse.
Alongside these applications, WCCTV's body cameras have also been deployed to temporary locations such as Test and Trace centres, Nightingale Hospitals and Vaccination Centres, helping manage medical emergencies in areas of heightened tension.
WCCTV's body worn video solutions actively help reduce these situations, allowing health care to continue providing essential services.
Our complete range of solutions includes body cameras, Evidence Management Software that can be provided as a cloud-based solution or installed onto your local servers, multi-unit docking stations, and various mounting options for attaching the cameras to a range of uniforms.
Unique benefits of WCCTV's solutions include:
Forward Facing Screen: The unique forward-facing screen on WCCTV's body cameras helps significantly calm aggressive behaviour. When an individual is aware they are being recorded, their behaviour improves dramatically. WCCTV's body cameras don't just tell individuals they're being recorded; they show them.
