Mike is the Head of Security and Resilience at Barnsley Hospital.
Earlier in 2013 the hospital were recognised in a prestigious awards scheme run by major security firm Securitas.
The hospital was highly commended in the Securitas Community Awards 2013 in association with IFSEC Global.com in the Good Customer Award category, which recognises customers of Securitas who demonstrate their commitment to the continuing improvement of quality in security services.
Mike said: “It is a real honour to be highly commended in these awards, especially when we were up against some very well-known and large-scale organisations.
“We have been working in partnership with Securitas to make sure that security has a high profile in and around the hospital, and that people recognise the crucial role it plays in the hospital’s day-to-day running – for example deterring crime, keeping staff and patients safe, protecting physical and intellectual property, and managing the car parks.
“Our security team, provided by Securitas, is fantastic and every day keeps thousands of people as safe as possible and helps to keep hospital activities running smoothly. This award recognises the great work they are doing.”
Mike is also the Event Safety Director of ‘Music in the Gardens’.
He coordinates the planning, setup, stewarding and event control of a four-day music festival (held in July in Sheffield’s Botanical Gardens).
