According to the most recent statistics from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) published in 2018, spending on healthcare in the UK totalled £214.4 billion, equating to £3,227 per person. The figure, made up of government and non-government spending, contributed to 10% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), an increase of 9.6% from 2017.
With recent efforts to combat the spread of coronavirus, this figure looks set to grow. With the government and healthcare providers spending more on PPE and essential ICU equipment, protecting public and private healthcare providers has never been more important.
And it’s not just healthcare providers such as hospitals and care homes that need protection, it’s suppliers too. The UK has often been hailed as a world leader in the manufacturing and marketing of clinical products and pharmaceuticals, with over 5,500 companies active in the country, including 20 of the world’s top pharmaceutical businesses.
Unfortunately for the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries, damage to property or supplies, not only costs money, but it can mean delays in delivering essential care to the public. Protecting your business with professional security services can help to reduce the risk of your premises being targeted, acting as a visible deterrent to help keep your business safe.
At KeyPlus, we provide a range of security services to healthcare providers and manufacturers across Lancashire, from alarm response services to mobile patrols. We work with pharmacies, hospices, health centres, laboratories and more to deliver quality security services that represent great value for money.
We know how important it is to work with our clients to meet their needs, so we carry out site surveys to familiarise ourselves with your practices and processes, and understand exactly what you need from a security services provider. Working with you to highlight areas of concern, we can create a tailored approach to your security needs, giving you peace of mind, and helping you to focus on doing what you do best.
