Conquest Hospital case study
Based on a gently sloping site in Hastings, the Conquest
Hospital is a modern District General Hospital. Built over four
levels, the hospital opened 16 years ago and in 2002 merged
with Eastbourne Hospital to form East Sussex Hospitals NHS
Trust serving the population of East Sussex.
The Trust employs over 5000 staff and is an extremely busy hospital
trust. In the last year 3835 babies were delivered; 95,393 people were
treated as inpatients and day cases and a total of 115,147 patients were
treated in their two emergency departments.

In 2007, the access control system at the Conquest Hospital failed and
could not be recovered. Installation of a new system by the current
provider was not a realistic option because of the cost that had been
quoted to them. John Kirk, the Security Manager, decided to investigate
installing a Net2 networked access control system from Paxton
Access as their Eastbourne Hospital was already secured using the
Net2 system.

Vistec Systems of Crawley were approached to tender for the installation and won the project. The Net2 system is now working across
all of their sites. This includes the main hospital in Hastings, Bexhill Hospital, the Irvine Unit, St Anne’s and the Woodlands Unit.
                                                                           A total of 6500 user cards are now issued and 83 doors are controlled
                                                                           by a Net2 System. The Security Team Leader, Steve Edwards, controls
                                                                           all of this from one PC at Conquest Hospital. He believes the main
                                                                           advantage of Net2 is how easy he finds it to use. “Despite the huge
                                                                           numbers of staff, Net2 is still simple and user friendly because the
                                                                           software is very intuitive. The Windows interface means that training

                                                                           Using 11 TCP/IP Ethernet interfaces, the remote sites are controlled

                                                                           hardwiring between floors we decided to use the TCP/IP interfaces
                                                                           as they were so much more convenient and cost effective.” Steve
                                                                           compares the Paxton Access Net2 system to the system that they
                                                                           had previously: “The instant nature of Net2 is much more reliable and
                                                                           reassuring. The previous system sometimes took days to register or

cancel a card meaning that security was compromised. The moment a
card is registered on the Net2 system, it becomes live and appropriate
access levels are in place.”

Steve says: “Our staff are very happy to have the system in place. The
transition was also really smooth because we were able to use all of our
existing HiCode cards. This saved both time and money.”

John and Steve have been so impressed with Net2 that it will be integrated
with their fire alarm and extended across their remaining remote sites. John
says: “We would certainly recommend the system; we are more than happy
with it. Compared with our earlier access control system it is far superior. This
is the best period of security stability we have enjoyed in a long time.”

  Did you know...?
   Net2 software includes image verification
   If a photo is added to a user’s record in Net2, this picture is automatically shown in the software when they present their token
   at a door. This ensures that tokens are only used by those authorised. Tokens cannot be shared.
