Communication is key on the frontline

Being on the front line is tough. Who knows what the day will bring, and what conditions you will face? Critical workers need to communicate without delay. The right radio can make all the difference.

The COVID-19 global pandemic has caused a huge strain on our NHS, with the second wave creating even more stress on hospitals in the UK. With more than 1000 Coronavirus admissions a day, it is more important than ever for hospitals to have vital communications equipment to hand.

By implementing two-way radios into your healthcare department this means that social distancing can be put into practice and your staff can feel safe in their working environment. Two-way radios allow communication between colleagues without the need to be in direct contact with each other.

As the virus spreads further it may be time to consider adding to your current fleet so that everyone has their own individual radio to use during this period. Radios are a great way for healthcare staff to immediately connect if an emergency arises that needs taking care of.

The Government have officially said that they recommend the use of two-way radios within working environments to help with social distancing whilst people move throughout the workplace:

‘Reducing movement by discouraging non-essential trips within buildings and sites, for example, restricting access to some areas, encouraging use of radios or telephones, where permitted, and cleaning them between use.’

Those who work within healthcare environments are at the highest risk of catching the virus. This is where two-way radios come into play. Teams can still get the job done but can become more efficient in the process by not having to walk from one end of the hospital to the other and will have round the clock communication. All staff within the hospital can benefit from these devices from the doctors and nurses to facilities management and security.
