The service will include Customer Service, Account Management, Communication protocols, and Management Support. • Our specific requirement incorporates the provision of a dedicated site officer at the Brighton General Hospital site. • The Provider will need to have the ability to respond to alarm calls from our monitoring contractor during the contracted hours and should be able to enter and re-secure premises as appropriate. • There is an additional intention that the Provider will respond to Fire Alarm activations for the same premises. • Providers should have electronic tracking/recording systems that monitor site visits • The site officer and vehicle will be expected to patrol other sites (as listed below) and provide a key holding/alarm response service. The service provider will provide and display appropriate signage at all sites and will be able to provide back-up in the event of security breaches or a major incident. • Sites to be included are; Brighton General Hospital Morley Street Dental Clinic and school Mouslecombe Health Centre Portslade Health Centre Chailey Heritage • In addition to the above detailed services there will be a requirement to provide guarding of staff for visits to difficult and potentially violent patients. • Bidders should also note that Sussex Community NHS Trust also provides services across West Sussex including Chichester, Bognor, Crawley and Horsham.
