Nurse Call partnership boosts Secom’s health and care portfolio

21 March 2019

In a move that strengthens its position in the health and care sectors, Secom plc is partnering with Courtney Thorne to offer the care technology specialist’s Nurse Call solutions.

This means Secom will be able to offer existing and new NHS or private sector customers a seamless package of security systems and on-site call technology.

Neil Fitzwalter, head of Secom’s new Care Technology division, says: “Our new partnership enables us to extend to concept of security down to the individual needs of hospital patients and care home residents.

“To achieve this, we needed a proven solution from a manufacturer of future-proof systems, coupled with appropriate levels of support. Courtney Thorne’s systems are an excellent fit for our needs.”

The partnership also gives Courtney Thorne access to a wider UK market, through Secom’s nationwide presence.

Bournemouth-based Courtney Thorne has manufactured call systems for more than 50 years, and since 1990 has focused on the development of wireless call systems for hospitals and care homes.

Graham Vickrage, Courtney Thorne managing director, says: “To have a leading international security company like Secom choose us as a solution partner is very exciting. We look forward to working with them.”

Courtney Thorne’s solutions include cloud-based monitoring tools that enable hospital and care home managers to analyse activity and performance data.
