Static Systems Group recently welcomed committee members from the Design in Mental Health Network (DiMHN) to its Staffordshire headquarters, where the DiMHN committee combined a CPD visit with its latest board meeting.
The main aims of the visit, which was co-hosted by Static Systems Group and Guardian Staff Safety Systems, were to establish opportunities for collaborative working and highlight the latest product developments in attack alarm, fire, and call systems.
Committee members were shown around Static Systems’ Design and Innovation Centre and Concept Ward, and were able to find out about the outcomes of the collaborative working that the company and a number of suppliers have been undertaking over the past year since the Concept Ward was launched.
Jennie Terry, Marketing manager at Static Systems, said: “We were delighted to host this visit from the DiMHN. As well as providing an opportunity to discuss how we might better serve the mental health sector and work more closely with the Network, it enabled us to demonstrate ways in which our advanced communication solutions can help improve staff safety, and assist in enhancing efficiencies in mental healthcare facilities – freeing up staff time, while simultaneously helping to provide a sense of well-being for patients.”
Jenny Gill, chairman of the Design in Mental Health Network, added: “We recognise the value of getting out and about to meet our members, so we have introduced a series of CPD visits which coincide with our board meetings. The visit to Static Systems’ headquarters proved really interesting, and was a great opportunity to see how Static Systems and Guardian are considering innovative ways of using technology to provide real benefits for both staff and patients in the mental health environment. We’d like to thank the teams at Static Systems and Guardian for organising this informative visit.”
Static Systems’ Design & Innovation Centre is available as a venue for industry workshops and seminars.
