ABOUT US | Connecting caregivers, patients and systems through smart communication technologies

At SSG we believe that human interaction is an essential part of the caregiving process, and that good technology should enable caregivers to be free from unnecessary distractions, so they can focus on giving their patients the care they need, when they need it.

That’s why, for almost 60 years, we have been developing smart solutions and technologies that connect people and systems to provide safer, healthier environments for both staff and patients in the acute care setting.

TECHNOLOGY | How do we do what we do

From our first electronic nurse ‘call bell’ system launched in 1964, which enabled patients in hospital to call for help, we have continued to explore ways that technology can work for our customers. Whether that is providing essential critical alarms, integrated communication systems or software solutions to enhance clinical workflow, our focus is on keeping patients safe, providing a calming environment and giving our customers more time to care.

OUR LEGACY | We are proud to be a British manufacturer, with a strong heritage in product design, build and installation

As technology advances, our digital solutions can help customers evolve with the ever-changing demands of the healthcare environment, preserving resources, reducing costs and improving patient care.

Our people are inspired and empowered to make to develop best-in-class solutions that have a positive impact on the patient and carer experience. As part of the Halma family, we are passionate about creating a safer, cleaner and healthier future for everyone, every day.



Visit our Design & Innovation Centre incorporating the P22+ Repeatable Room and Innovation Ward

Our vision is that our Design & Innovation Centre, based at our head office near Wolverhampton in the West Midlands, can be used by the wider industry to test, trial and develop innovative solutions and conceptual ideas.

Central to this vision is the Innovation Ward, which aims to showcase future healthcare technology and innovation and foster greater industry collaboration in ward design. We want to encourage closer collaborative working among equipment suppliers and specialists, nursing management teams, clinicians, patient representatives, healthcare planners, design groups, constructors and other interested parties to enable the ongoing provision and delivery of world-class buildings and facilities and help improve healthcare outcomes for all.

It isn’t easy to test new technologies or processes in a live ward scenario and that’s where our facility comes into its own. It enables healthcare professionals to test these things in a safe and controlled environment, and to shape future ward design that addresses the core goals of patient safety, patient experience, workflow and task management.

We encourage healthcare representatives to share their ward design challenges or futuristic ideas so that these can be explored further in the Design & Innovation Centre. We also make the facility available as a venue for industry workshops and seminars. To find out more please email: or call SSG’s head office on: 01902 895 551.

SSG’s Design & Innovation Centre is backed by support, investment and the provision of technology from a number of leading industry suppliers including: Tarkett Flooring, Armitage Shanks, Rockfon Ceilings, Thorlux Lighting, Akzo Nobel and KwickScreen. During its development SSG also consulted with a number of organisations and industry representatives including healthcare planners, nursing managers, architects and construction teams, and key industry bodies.
