Two-Way Radio Systems for Healthcare
Whether a vast multi-building hospital complex or a small care home or hospice, 2CL Communications can assist you in providing a two-way radio system tailored specifically to your healthcare facility’s requirements by helping to provide excellent patient care, while also ensuring the continued safety of everyone on site.
2CL have been responsible for the design and implementation of several successful two-way radio systems in the healthcare sector across the UK, ranging from large hospitals to smaller-scale country-wide care homes and private complexes.
With our industry-leading experience in providing two-way radio solutions to healthcare customers, we fully understand that due to the design of the buildings, in order to accommodate large medical equipment, two-way radios may not provide adequate coverage on most standard systems.
We have a wealth of experience in designing complex in-building antenna systems linked to repeater stations, to provide enhanced radio coverage in areas often overlooked. Wherever your staff need to communicate, our radio systems will enable you to continue operations safely and effectively.
For smaller sites, we can offer a very simple automated solution which enables ‘nurse call’ type messages to be interfaced with the radio system. This shortens nurse response times and can provide your establishment with a greater level of patient care.
Two-Way Radios Available for Healthcare
With the latest models of two-way digital radio and the developments in providing feature-rich portable devices, there is sure to be a radio suitable for your exact requirements. Ranging from rugged handsets built for durability to sleek high-performance radios with discreet operation, and a wide range of accessories to choose from, whatever your requirements secure, reliable communication is easily achievable.
Hospital Radio Solutions in London & Hampshire
After the continued support of an analogue radio system for over 7 years, the time came for Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth to upgrade its radio system to a digital radio solution. The complexity of the building and complex ward arrangements meant coverage was the main issue. Working with the Hospital, we were able to advise and upgrade the system to a MOTOTRBO IP Site Connect System and Motorola DP4800 Hand Portables with distributed antenna systems to ensure full building coverage.
Combined with a TRBOnet Dispatcher System, 2CL were able to assist the Hospital Staff in utilising the advancements in two-way radio digital technology, offering Telephone Interconnection and Private Calling to improve the hospital’s operations and effectiveness. Queen Alexandra Hospital then took out a Maintenance Contract to ensure that should the system have any issues, 2CL will be on hand no matter what time of day to bring the system back online, whether the issue is fixed remotely or by a site visit.
2CL Communications performed a similar upgrade of an analogue two-way radio system to digital for St. Georges University of London. Their new system comprises of MOTOTRBO repeaters and DP1400 portable radios in digital mode, providing double the channel capacity and crystal-clear digital audio. Both these systems were installed with minimal disruption and downtime due to the experience and flexibility of 2CL’s Radio Service Department.
Care Home Radio Solutions
Healthcare radios on a smaller scale, but just as important, 2CL Communications is proud to support a chain of care homes across the UK. Initially set up to support the Fire Wardens and the Nursing Staff at one care home, 2CL have been asked to support several more locations across the UK. The compact and lightweight design and impressive range of digital features of the Hytera PD365 Hand portables were ideal for hospital staff, and operating on an Ofcom Simple Site License offers a greater range than the license-free solutions.
