A Statement Concerning COVID-19

By Statements

We wish to inform you that Panther Security will continue to operate as normal.

We would like to reassure you that we have strict safety measures in place to ensure we safeguard the health of our employees, our customers and preserve our ability to operate.  Please see the below:-

On site:

  • Preventative Measures prior to entering a premises – Before entering a premises our employees will ask if the customer(s) is self isolating, if they have any symptoms and are there any vulnerable category persons within the premises. If necessary the Engineer will not enter the premises and the visit will be rescheduled. If there is a vulnerable category person present the employee will only enter with the customers consent.
  • Safe Distance – We ask our customers and Engineers to keep a safe distance from each other (minimum of 2m).
  • Customer to ensure area in which the engineer is working has good ventilation (ie opening windows where needed)
  • We have instructed our Engineers to keep conversations to a minimum and to only discuss issues and give advice relating to the job in hand.
  • Personal Hygiene – All engineers and sales will have antibacterial gel/wipes (as long as we are able to source them). They have been instructed to wash their hands on arriving and leaving a premises whenever possible. Where this is not possible, or you would prefer them not to use your facilities, hand gel will be used.
  • PPE – Our engineers will carry masks, gloves and shoe covers.
  • Hand Held Devices – the customer will no longer be asked to sign our hand held devices.

In and around the workplace:

  • Social distancing – We are asking all Engineers to avoid non-essential visits to the office, no lunch breaks to be taken at the office, no engineering group meetings and for all employees to avoid any gatherings.
  • Temperature – All employees will have their temperature taken whenever possible. If in doubt or a high temperature is identified, the individual will be sent home to self isolate.
  • Vehicle travel – no vehicle sharing.
  • Office closed to the public – our office will not be accepting visitors at this current time. Any payments can be made online via your invoice, by bank transfer, over the phone or by posting of cheques. We cannot currently accept cash payments. Any batteries for wireless systems that customers wish to purchase will be posted.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued patience, understanding and support. If you have any concerns regarding this statement or any scheduled visits please do not hesitate to contact us.

The Turner Diagnostic Centre at Colchester General Hospital

By Past Projects

A new purpose-built diagnostic imaging centre has opened at Colchester General Hospital. The Turner Diagnostic Centre, a 23,000 square foot building, integrates key modalities including MRI, PET-CT and nuclear medicine – bringing together clinical expertise, IT and diagnostic capacity under one roof. The innovative concept is designed to streamline care pathways which will result in an

improved patient experience, faster access to diagnostics and the ability to distribute results in a timely way.

The Turner Diagnostic Centre is the result of a partnership between Colchester Hospital University NHS Trust and Alliance Medical, a specialist diagnostic and molecular imaging services provider which has long standing clinical contracts with the Trust and NHS England to provide MRI and PET-CT services.

Panther Security delivered a full security package for this centre including an Intruder Alarm system, CCTV, Access Control and Video Intercom.
