Selected by NHS England as a ‘digital exemplar’, West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust (WSFT) look to make radical improvements in patient care through innovative use of technology. The Trust recognised that its clinicians were spending too much time battling with lengthy log-in procedures losing valuable time caring for patients. As such, it wanted to streamline workflows, especially in ED where minutes or even seconds can make a real difference.
West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust (WSFT) provides hospital and community health services to the 275,000 population of West Suffolk. This includes the 430 bed West Suffolk Hospital where services include: Accident and Emergency, Surgery, Medicine, Cardiology, Oncology and Women’s and Children’s services including maternity. The Trust vision is for its workforce of almost 4000 staff to deliver the best quality and safest care for its patients, as recognised recently by the CQC which rated WSFT as ‘Outstanding’.
