NHS Security Management
The NHS Security Management Service creates policy designed to protect NHS staff and contractors, assess risk and prevent danger to NHS staff across England.
An overview of the role of the Local Security Management Specialist (LSMS) can be found at this link: http://www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/SecurityManagement/Documents/LSMS_PCT.pdf
A fundamental area of concern within the NHS is staff safety and security, both on- and off-site including within the premises of NHS contractors. Each PCT has a Local Security Management Specialist who has a duty to provide a service to those “within the PCT and, where applicable, within those organisations contracted to provide services for the PCT”.
