Care Campaign For The Vulnerable Jayne Connery meets HCONE CEO Justin Hutchens
Care Campaign met with CEO Justin Hutchens of HC-ONE in London a few weeks ago allowing us a unique and special opportunity to discuss the use of CCTV safety monitoring in care homes with one of the UK’s biggest care providers. Since the meeting, Jayne has accepted a invitation from Mr Hutchens to visit a HCONE care facility and will be meeting with his Chief Operating Officer as well as Head of Development. Jayne said ahead of the visit ‘ I think it’s crucial to sit and talk over the benefits safety monitoring can bring into care homes especially with major players in the sector and I am very thankful to Justin Hutchens for allowing me to do so. It’s understood Care Campaign is contacted by families and carers who do not always have a good experience in care. Everyone who contacts us say safety monitoring would have been very beneficial and reassuring. Having the opportunity to talk to providers and care staff on the benefits safety monitoring can bring to all who live and work in care homes is crucial . I have never come across any long term resistance to safety monitoring once the right reasons for installing it is explained. It’s a sad fact some myths still surround the use of CCTV in care. I’m very eager to put to rest these inaccuracies. Safety monitoring should be a required necessity /care assist tool when operating, working and living in a care setting. A transparent and safer environment can only be achieved fully with the use of safety monitoring - so with this in mind, I’m very much looking forward to my visit and I would like to thank HC-ONE for inviting Care Campaign For The Vulnerable into their care home
"The evidence from Providers who have installed CCTV seems to me to merit careful attention and to be quite persuasive"

British Actress Aimi Macdonald is Care Campaign for the Vulnerable Ambassador - raising public awareness for better, safer, transparent care within the care sector.
I am delighted to be invited as a Ambassador to assist in this wonderful campaign instigated by Jayne Connery regarding CCTV security in care homes throughout the UK. This, I feel, will benefit carers, staff, residents and their families in the event of any dispute. As a relative of someone suffering with Alzheimers disease I have been involved with care homes over the last ten years and I feel the knowledge I have can contribute to this very important initiative
