Ofsted extremely impressed…
We have used the Little Green Button for quite a while now and have found it brilliant. We are a very spread out school and classrooms are well spaced, but to have the security of the Little Green Button available for incidents and emergencies has made all staff feel much safer with help closely at hand. We had our Ofsted visit last year and they were looking at safeguarding issues amongst other areas and the inspectors were extremely impressed by our Little Green Button and this went a good way to our excellent report. We would recommend this to all schools, we ourselves would not like to be without it.

Avoiding many incidents becoming more serious…
Mounton House is a special school for boys aged 11-16 with emotional, social and behavioural problems. As a result of this we have regular occurrences of boys behaving inappropriately and situations escalating to verbal abuse or physical confrontation. We have up to 60 boys and about 12 teaching staff/locations as well as various other support staff. We were looking for an early warning system that the teachers could use from their rooms to flag a problem before it escalated to a heightened level. As the staff are all experienced in de-escalation strategies with appropriate training for when a physical intervention is necessary we see a great advantage in identifying a problem and supporting each other at as early a stage as possible. Since we have installed the Little Green Button on teaching staff PCs it is used on a daily basis to alarm of early problems, with staff responding promptly to support each other and avoiding many incidents becoming more serious. The reduction of confrontations is a big benefit in improving pupil-staff relationships and reducing the risks involved at a school like ours. The software has been very effective for our needs and although the support we have required has been minimal it has always been responsive.

Just renewed our subscription for another year…
We have found the Little Green Button alarm system to be very useful. As it is on the computer screen, it is very discrete and easy to activate without causing suspicion or alerting anyone to what you are doing. Once activated, a message appears on every screen in the surgery directing you to the room where the problem is. During our Quality Annual Review visit from the City & Hackney PCT last November, they were very impressed and we were complimented on having such an innovative internal alarm system. The annual subscription is reasonable and we are happy to endorse the Little Green Button system having just renewed our subscription for another year.

Instant response from staff…
Queen Square Medical Practice trialled and subsequently purchase the Little Green Button software. We found it very easy to install and use. It required minimal staff training. We originally purchased the Little Green Button to provide an alarm system to help protect staff. I am pleased to say that to date it has not had to be used to this end. However it has been used on two occasions where patients have collapsed and the health care workers have required urgent assistance. On both occasions GPs, nurses and reception staff responded instantly to the calls for assistance and arrived at the incident within seconds of the alarm being raised. It has only been used in error once and the response albeit to a false alarm was prompt with several members of team offering assistance within seconds of the alarm call. We are so pleased with the Little Green Button software we have recently renewed our subscription for a second time.

Simply brilliant…
The Little Green Button is simply brilliant. Easy to install and operate and gives frontline staff reassurance that if assistance is ever needed, a quick click on the computer screen sends an instant message to all the team who are there in a flash. Our other panic alarm system links straight to the Police but this isn’t always appropriate so the Little Green Button has become invaluable for day to day use if needed. Support and renewal is just as easy and hassle free – very highly recommended.
