This could also come in handy for HMP Bullingdon in Oxfordshire, who’s recently granted Virgin Care a three-year contract worth £6.6 million for running prison healthcare services.

According to the company’s representatives, Virgin Care is looking to develop a new prison healthcare model that will allow patients to be treated more locally within the prison site rather than transferred to different sections. The contract from HMP Bullingdon is the fifth prison sector contract Virgin Care has won.

The Tensor Prison Pass system enables HM Prison Service Officers to easily identify and monitor the movements of contractors such as Virgin Care’s personnel. It allows for the easy and fast booking of access times, and records a log of every visitor on site at any given moment, which is quite an important feature since, in the event of a fire or any emergency which requires evacuation, a list can quickly be generated by the simple click of a button.

A photograph taken by a digital or eyeball camera is printed on a bar-coded pass using a high speed printer so each visitor is easily identified, and, at the controlled monitor points, the visitor pass badge is simply swiped and a high quality digital image appears to the HM Prison Service Officers thus verifying that the correct person is passing through.

Biometrics can be combined with the visitor badges to operate the system, Tensor’s range of dermal fingerprint reading technology offering a very good level of accuracy and reliability, which makes it perfect for those situations when irrefutable proof of identity is required.
