After a career as a uniformed constable with the Metropolitan Police serving in South London during the 70s, 80s and 90s I moved to Sussex and spent several years doing a variety of jobs including as a commercial first aid course instructor with St John Ambulance.

Eventually after engaging in further education I decided to reuse the skills and experience gained during my police service and applied and was successful in joining the NHS as an Emergency planning Manager for two PCT’s. At some stage the question was asked ‘we’ve got to find someone to go on a five week security type course and can’t think of anyone but!’ the rest as they say is history. Having completed my LSMS course I remained as Emergency Planning Manager and now LSMS for two PCT’s. Times changed and five PCT’s merged and I remained the sole LSMS for the newly named West Sussex PCT. At this time I learnt about the existence of NAHS and was pleased to be introduced to and join a group of people who had the same if not greater passion for keeping staff and NHS premises secure.

Another merger brought a bigger area of responsibility with no extra resource. CPD training was now an absolute requirement to keep up with industry and NHS changes and has been an asset to improving my breadth of knowledge and experience. Added to this the ability to get information and shared experience from the wealth of knowledge and experience within the NAHS exec and membership the day job is just about manageable.

First as vice chair of the South Coast group and more lately as Deputy Chair (Strategy) of the national exec I look forward to keeping NAHS as a viable contributor to the wider struggle to keep all NHS Staff secure in their workplace.

Martin joined the NHS in 2001, working for Croydon and Surrey Downs Community Trust managing a number of community clinics, having previously worked in purchasing and logistics roles in the private sector. Soon afterwards, the Community Trust became Croydon PCT and Martin took on the management of the PCT’s Estates and Facilities contracts in addition to managing community clinics, gaining a Post Graduate Diploma in Management Studies from Kingston University in 2004.

Then the same year the PCT received notification that it was required to have a Local Security Management Specialist (LSMS) and, as is traditional in such additionally required roles, there was no funding for the role within the PCT so someone had to take on the responsibility on top of any existing ones. Martin agreed to take on the role, sharing it with the PCT’s Health and Safety Manager and so became an accredited LSMS in 2005.Then in 2006, Martin moved from the PCT to an acute Trust, East Surrey Hospital as LSMS, returning to Croydon PCT in 2007 to manage all the premises/community clinics, Estates and Facilities and undertake the LSMS role. Following this in 2008 he moved to the South West London Shared Services Partnership as LSMS for a consortium of SW London PCTs, finally becoming the LSMS for the London Ambulance Service (LAS)in 2010; a Trust of over 5000 staff, working out of approximately 80 sites serving a population of more than eight million people who live and work in London and attending to more than one million incidents a year.

Martin has gained significant and valuable experience as an LSMS across a range of Trust Sectors, giving him aunique perspective of security management within healthcare (including planning and preparation for LAS security prior to and during the Olympics in 2012). During his time as an LSMS he has sought to enhance his experience by gaining accreditation and qualification as an NHS Conflict Resolution Trainer and gaining a BSc (Hons) Risk and Security Management degree from Portsmouth University. He is now completing his final year of an MSc in Security Management from Portsmouth and is additionally studying for the University of South Wales BSc (Hons) Professional Practice (Violence Reduction) and also the Certified Security Management Professional accredited diploma from the International Security Management Institute. Consequently he has been a student member of the Security Institute for rather a longtime!
