Counter terrorism protective security advice for health

Guidance on reducing the risk from terrorism in the healthcare sector.



NaCTSO has researched and produced a guidance booklet addressing security issues related to threat from a terrorist attack. It is intended to cover all NHS sites and the private sector.

The principles and procedures outlined in this booklet are based on recommendations derived from the experience of specialists, aiming to reduce the risk for staff, patients and visitors through knowledge and learning, as well as understanding the threat they may face and the proportionate measures they can undertake to reduce their vulnerabilities.

Each Health Care site will require unique site-specific advice to complement this generic guidance. For further assistance please contact your CTSA or use the non emergency police telephone number 101.
