Hello and Welcome to the National Association for Healthcare Security
The National Association for Healthcare Security was formed in 1994, as a non profit making professional organisation in the United Kingdom. The NAHS works to continually improve security in healthcare facilities through training and the exchange of information and experiences. We aim to promote co-operation and development amongst our members and provide them with current information through conferences, meetings and events; designed to meet the challenges and complexities of protecting modern medical facilities.
Healthcare Security is one of the most complex security functions. We aim to support and enable healthcare provision through the delivery of professional security; ultimately enhancing the healthcare environment.
The NAHS, as a stakeholder in healthcare security, supports NHS Protect (NHSP) as it develops the strategic direction and development of NHS healthcare security. This is already reflected in meetings with, and membership of, NHSP working parties and committees by members of the NAHS.
The NAHS is pleased to endorse the Healthcare Security Officer Training programme developed in partnership with AEGIS. This new healthcare specific training course supersedes the NAHS Healthcare Security Officer Foundation (Basic) Training Course previously taught in Bristol and London.
