We will ensure that sustainability is at the forefront of improvements and refurbishments to our sites and facilities, with patient and staff wellbeing at the core. This will range from new building work, to greater digitalisation of our ways of working.
We are making good progress towards becoming a completely paper-free organisation. All the information relating to our adult patients is now available to clinicians electronically, following a project to digitise all paper records held at our hospitals. The project won Health Tech Digital’s ‘Innovation project of the year’ award in 2020, and involved digitising patients’ records held at three main record library sites, where around two million patient files were stored, freeing up valuable space to be reinvested into patient care.
